Where Angels Go by Debbie Macomber
Many people pray for things they want or need. Especially when they are in trouble or during the Christmas holiday season. One year the angels were so busy helping people that the Archangel Gabriel decided to send Shirley, Goodness and Mercy to Earth to help with three requests. Previously these three angels had overstepped their bounds. This time they all want to be helpful to their assigned people without trying to make things happen as they want them. Carter wants a dog but his family cannot afford one. Beth feels that since she has failed in her marriage she is afraid to try a new relationship. Harry knows he is dying and wants to know his wife will be taken care of after his passing. Will these situations be resolved before Christmas? How can the angels help a little boy with his greatest wish, help a young woman trust and commit again and help an older gentleman find peace of mind? While reading this story I was aware of the angels but the focus is mostly on Carter, Beth, Harry and their needs. I wonder how many people are helped by angels daily without realizing it?
