When former national baseball star Tyler Ames suffers a career-ending injury, all he can think about is putting his life back together the way it was before. He has lost everyone he loves on his way to the big leagues. Then just when things seem to be turning around, Tyler hits rock bottom. Across the country, Tyler’s one true love Sami Dawson has moved on.
A series of small miracles leads Tyler to a maintenance job at a retirement home and a friendship with Virginia Hutcheson, an old woman with Alzheimer’s who strangely might have the answers he so desperately seeks.
A team of Angels Walking take on the mission to restore hope for Tyler, Sami, and Virginia. Can such small and seemingly insignificant actions of the unseen bring healing and redemption? And can the words of a stranger rekindle lost love? Every journey begins with a step.
It is time for the mission to begin…
This is the first book in the Series “Angels Walking” Series. I think I have read almost all of Karen Kingsbury’s books, she is such a gifted author who God uses through her stories. I really believe that.
I loved this story so much and I hope you will enjoy it as well. The story is about Tyler Ames, who wants to make it to the Bigs in Baseball. He tries, but in the meantime he gets hurt while he is still in the Minor Leagues, I bet this was hard for him as it is hard for everyone of us. He busts up his shoulder and the doc says it is worse than Tyler ever imagined. The team “The Blue Wahoos” cut him from the team and they won’t pay for his surgery to his shoulder. So, in the meantime, he loses his apartment, his job, and everything. He is homeless. He gets strung up on oxycodone, which is bad and with the help of some Angels, Beck and Ember, goes to a soup kitchen in Pensacola, Florida and one of the angels directs him to Merrill Place and he works there. In the meantime, he becomes good friends with one of the residents.
Then, his old girlfriend back in LA, is dating another guy and he’s just too serious. She has issues with this but her grandparents like him, he’s stable. Ember, the angel, talks with her about life being too short to settle.
Then, Ember sees Tyler’s parents also and just tells them to pray. So, they do this.
I won’t go on any further because I don’t want to ruin this story for you. Oh my gosh, this is one book, I just couldn’t put down. Karen, thank you for giving us readers something like this and I know everyone will agree with that as well. You are one of the best if not the BEST author around. Thank you.
I have cried in this book, which I always do because the Lord is in this book big time. Thanks again, Karen.
