Book Review: Brush of Angel's Wings
By: Ruth Reid
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 girl.
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.
I enjoyed this book. I was not sure at first what I thought of Nathaniel the angel or Tangus the demon. I know that the are Angels and demons I just am not sure what their role in our lives look like. I am sure it is very possible that they are vying for a place in our thoughts. The things that these two said kind of reminded me of the good and bad angels on your shoulder. The story was charming and I easily could relate to Rachel and her situations and feelings. For part of the book I wondered about Jordan as an outsider and one not raised in the community I thought he knew to much about the culture and such and that confused me at first. But as I read I realized that his mother raised him with many of the values and traditions of community even though they lived in the world. Over all I was pleased with this book and enjoyed the story line. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
