Vacation Reading: Brush of an Angel’s Wing
This is bad. I read Brush of an Angel’s Wing by Ruth Reid a long, long, long time ago.
And I am just writing a review.
I probably should never agree to write a vacation reading review unless it is a paperback or something.
Out of sight, out of mind.
Because of my tardiness, I am going to share a “summary,” shall we say that you may also happen to read on a certain website where this book is sold. Is that OK?
He doesn’t plan to stay Amish. She doesn’t have a plan.
Then an angel draws their hearts toward God . . . and each other.
A buggy-racing champion, a hardworking field-hand, and a terrible cook, Rachel Hartzler does not fit her Amish community’s standards for an eligible bride. Hurt by their rejection and still grieving the loss of her brother, Rachel is ready for change.
She’s not, however, ready for Jordan Engles. Rachel’s father hired him to help tend the fields so Rachel can learn to cook and sew, thus increasing her chances of finding a husband. She can’t understand why her father doesn’t want her help and blames Jordan for trying to replace her beloved brother.
Jordan plans for his time on the Michigan farm to be short. Before his mother passed away, he promised her he’d give her Amish roots a chance. Upon her death, uncertain about what else to do, he came to stay with his Uncle Isaac in Hope Falls. He’s curious why his mother left the community she obviously loved. But it doesn’t take Jordan long to conclude that the strict lifestyle and the three hour church services are not for him.
But there isn’t just human interaction at play. Nathaniel, an angel of God, sees the potential in Jordan and Rachel’s hearts from heaven’s perspective. His goal is to shepherd them toward the path of healing and love.
When tragedy strikes, then strikes again, this angelic being is sent to guide them toward the healing and abundant life promised in God’s Word – if only they will listen.
Now that I read the synopsis, I remember that I actually did REALLY enjoy this book. I think the angel was a bit of a stretch, though. Yet, said angel played a crucial role.
Kind of like they do in the Bible.
So put it on your wish list.
Or on your Kindle. Like me.
Thank you Booksneeze! I received this book for free, just like the button said. You can too!
