About the Book: Rachel and Jordan's feelings for each other are hostile at first, but angelic
intervention helps the two discover peace . . . and perhaps love.
The youngest and last unmarried of four sisters, Rachel Hartlzer spends most
of her time helping with barn chores. Her role abruptly changes when her father
hires Jordan Engles, the son he always wanted.
As Jordan takes on brotherly roles around the house, like escorting Rachel to
the youth singing, the enmity between the two grows. Besides, Jordan has one
foot in the Englisch world and is determined not to get involved with an Amish
Neither realizes that God has sent an angel, Nathaniel, to help mend their
hearts. The angel’s intervention helps them find peace and healing in accepting
God's will for their lives.
About the Author: Ruth Reid is a full-time pharmacist who lives in Florida with her husband and three children. When attending Ferris State University School of Pharmacy in Big Rapids, Michigan, she lived on the outskirts of an Amish community and had several occasions to visit the Amish farms. Her interest grew into love as she saw the beauty in living a simle life.
My Thoughts On The Book: The primary character Rachel is not your typical Amish girl, and her story makes this a not so typical Amish book. I love reading the Amish stories and eventhough there have been many that portry the Amish vs. English romance theme the drama that Reid
writes into the story takes this book far deeper than most. What really makes it
stand out to me and kept me up until the wee hours of the morning is the parallel story that she has written in. The main story in Brush of Angel's
Wings is a wonderful story with likable characters and exciting action;
but when Nathaniel and Tangus are added in and you have the good vs evil level it definitely takes this book to a whole other level.
This is a story you will not want to miss. It was wonderful. I can't wait to read another book by Ruth Reid.
Disclaimer: I was given this book to review by Book Sneeze and Thomas Nelson. The opinions expressed are 100% my own.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
