    Not all angels look like cherubs Andy Sommerville s personal angel looks like an old man and Old Man is just what Andy calls him Ever since Andy was ten years old, the Old Man has been appearing to him cautioning him, advising him, always trying to set him on the right path And, over the years, the Old Man has encouraged Andy to collect mementos of the people who have been important to him and to keep them hidden inside an old wooden box.Now, things have suddenly gone very wrong for Andy The victim of a shocking and senseless crime committed at his gas station, he awakes in the hospital to find that he s been badly burned Even worse, the Old Man his lifelong friend visits one last time to let Andy know that he won t be seeing him again But Andy isn t alone Beside him in the hospital room sits a woman, Elizabeth, whom Andy takes to be a counselor With Elizabeth s gentle guidance, he goes through all the objects in his box, explaining and reliving the critical moments of his life In the process, he discovers the wondrous meaning for which his seemingly ordinary existence has been prep...

    This was a hard one to write SPOILER ALERT FaithWordsHachette Book GroupNow AvailableAndy Sommerville seems no different than others in his rural Virginia community, but what sets him apart is that his best friend is an angel Andy s world is turned upside down when a brutal attack leaves Andy burned and the boy he loved as a son dead At this crucial juncture, the angel abandons him to loneliness and pain The entire story is told from Andy s hospital bed as he relives his like through memories Each of the memories is triggered by something Andy has kept in a special box.Dollycas s Thoughts I started to read this book awhile ago and had to put it down because I could tell where it was headed With its release date last week I made myself finish it so I could honor my commitment for an honest review In the meantime, I had seen a few five star ratings, so I thought What is wrong with me This has to be a good book, you just have to finish it.It is well written and definitely has strong message but it just hit me wrong and after thinking about it, I now know why.As many of you know I had a traumatic experience myself back in 2001 when I was in a motor vehicl...

    I hope that I can do this magnificent book justice with my review I will give it my best shot, but just know that if I could give this book 10 stars, I would.We live in a world that has been completely and thoroughly brain washed by the power of positive thinking and prosperity preaching We are required to smile at all times, think happy thoughts at all times, and suppress anything that be even the slightest bit negative No pain, no sadness, no loneliness is allowed here and not because it doesn t exist Its existence is very real indeed But we are forced to suppress it all for convenience and appearances.This is why Paper Angels is a soothing balm for souls that grieve In the character of Andy, we can all see ourselves and what we have lost in life And we take that journey with him, step by step, in uncovering our own grief and learning that our feelings are very real, and they are okay I highlighted many many insightful passages in the book, but here are a handful Life was full of tragedy and there was no reasoning with it Sometimes I m sorry is all you can say because it s all you should say To feel sadness did no...
