Angel Song by Shelia Walsh, Kathryn Cushman

This book exceeded my expectations. I was not going to request it from Thomas Nelson and kept going back to it. Since I love fiction and I knew Kathryn Cushman was a good writer I decided to go for it. This book did not disappoint me-not in a page turning kind of a way-but a genuine, good storyline. Anne Fletcher is not a Christian and goes back home to Charleston to see her sister Sarah receive her master's degree. An unexpected car accident with Sarah hurt the worst. On the way to the hospital she is talking to someone and humming a song. Anne finds this strange since there is no one else in the ambulance but her. This tune will haunt Anne in the hospital, dreams and in Sarah's house. Anne needs to sell the house to get back to New York for her job and with the help of Ethan Mckinney who volunteers to get the home in shape. A neighbor and her son Keith help Anne try to make sense of what has happened. Keith has Downs Syndrome but believes he can see and hear angels. He lets Anne know they are all around her and looking out for her.
God starts to reveal Himself to Anne but will she open her heart to receive God's healing love?
Loved how Anne went from "all about her" to a caring and loving person. This story just flowed with an ease that most stories don't. Great collaborations between two wonderful authors. Hope to see more.
