Angels at the Table by Debbie Macomber – great gift for Christmas | Book review by Mom On A Spiritual Journey
Angels at the Table by Debbie Macomber – lovely Christmas gift!
I recently read Angels at the Table by Debbie Macomber (thanks again to Andover Library KS for their great new book section!).
It’s a short novel about angelic intervention and free will and is a love story, too.
Whether you believe in Angels at the Table or not – a fun read
Archangel Gabriel allows angels Shirley, Goodness and Mercy to take an angel-in-training, Will, down to Earth to watch the New Years’ celebrations.
They find themselves in trouble when Will is drawn to stand in the celebrating crowds in Times Square and notices two lonely people, a guy and a girl. He gives them a nudge with his wing and they connect and like each other.
So what’s wrong with that? They were destined to meet, but not that soon – so their relationship becomes blocked by a number of complications.
Archangel Gabriel is doing his best to teach the Angels simply to be Prayer Ambassadors and not interfere since free will must be the rule…but they find themselves inveigled none the less, resulting in several comedic moments for all concerned.
Can’t help seeing Angels at the Table as a movie at some point.
This book would definitely make a great movie, especially the Taxi scene with the flying newspaper – I was already thinking about casting whilst reading it and felt as if Tom Hanks should be in there somewhere!
Christmas labels and a Christmas gift recipe in the back of the book
The book also contains a delicious recipe for Peppermint Bark for family and friends and a Christmas gift label.
Whether you believe in Angels or not, or perhaps you have friends who do, this is a light read (pun intended) that I think quite a few spiritually inclined people will enjoy.
I’m going to be sitting and reading a number of books this Christmas with my (decaf) tea by my side. Perhaps there’ll be Angels at the Table…
Loved your review! Im about halfway thru this book, and I love it! =)
