Synopsis:
When her mother abandons her, Millie is left to pick up the pieces and care for her little brother, Ace. Just as she begins to accept her mother’s disappearance from their lives, Millie discovers the shocking secrets surrounding her birth; leaving her anguished and torn between her feelings for her father.

Through friendships, romantic connections and heartbreak, Millie learns that she is never alone to face the many obstacles life throws her way – for her life becomes centered on the celestial presence of an angel. As Millie becomes a young woman, she learns that in loving herself and directing the train of her thought-world, she holds the key to the Kingdom of Heaven: right here on earth.

When her mother contacts her a decade later, Millie visits with her just in time to realize her own angelic gift, when she finds she is not alone in discovering her mother’s whereabouts. With evil lurking between the cracks in her family, the appearance of Millie’s gift – a phenomenon that will heal and shine brighter than she could ever have imagined – changes her family’s perspectives and the direction of their lives forever.

My Review: ✮✮✮✮
I really wasn’t sure how to classify this book when it came to a genre. It is sort of in a class by itself. Yes, it is a love story and a story about a dysfunctional family. But this is so much more than that. This is a story about good vs. evil, about good driving out evil. Be ware, there are angels among us.

Emily and her twins, such a sad story. A story of God showing us the way, but giving us the choice, allowing us self-will.

Glen, Millie’s father, finally made it to the light he kept striving to find all along. He had kept fighting against the serpent within him and finally, there was help strong enough to help him cast it out.

Damon seemed to know what Millie was all along. And then there was Ace, Millie’s brother. The serpent had its teeth into him when he was young. As he grew, the attachment grew stronger and finally, he became the host and fled.

The Bible says, “God has given believers the Holy Spirit to help us on our walk of faith. He will guide us in the right direction.” Throughout Millie’s life, she turned to God for guidance. Sometimes she did it directly and sometimes she turned to Him through her angel.

This book is about faith and yet it is still a very comfortable read for anyone, even those not looking for a “Christian” book. Faith is the main focus and you are still not preached at. This is a very uplifting book in many ways. Though is has many very dark times and many bad things happen. It is a book of struggle and pain. The pace of the book is good, though there are some areas where it does bog down with all the sorrow and some predictability. This book comes with my strongest recommendations.
