The Promise of an Angel, by Ruth Reid
A Heaven on Earth Novel
Published by Thomas Nelson Publishing
Release date June 11, 2011

At 19, Judith Fischer loves children, and entertains them with stories  whenever she gets the chance.  She hopes to join the church, marry and have lots of children of her own, hopefully with Levi Plank, a young man in the Amish community where she was raised. 
When her young brother, Samuel, falls from the barn roof, Judith finds a large Englischer man hovering over him, and believes she has seen an angel.   Samuel, severely injured, will never walk again, according to the doctors.  Again, Judith sees and talks to the Angel, Tobias, who tells her he is sent from God, and that Samuel's steps are numbered by God.
When Judith tells about seeing an Angel, the whole community thinks she has lost it, and only Andrew Lapp, Levi's cousin and the Bishop's son, listens to her.   Before long, Judith finds herself with very few friends, and about to be forced to go live with family in Ohio, for continuing to believe that Tobia is an Angel,, after being told not to talk about this subject any more.

 This is Ruth Reid's first published book, and she has done an outstanding job of making the characters believable and come alive.  From the first page to the very end, it is a book that will hold your attention.  I hope that she continues to write more novels in this genre.

I recieved a copy of this book to read and review, no other compensation was given.  I was not required to write a favorable review.

PUJOLS More than the Game by S. Lamb and T. Ellsworth

More than the Game
by Scott Lamb and Tim Ellsworth
Published by Thomas Nelson

Albert Pujols and his wife, DeeDee, are amazing people which this book definitely shows.  They display their faith in God in many ways, always witnessing, in the way they live, and act, for Him.

With the statistics Pujols has, he could quit playing baseball right now, and still be in the record books for the rest of time.  He works hard to display his God Given talent, never letting up on practice just because he is tired.

I loved this book, it shows how, even when you are on top, you can be a Nice Guy.
I did think that the statistics were a bit much, but once I got past those, I cruised right through the rest, enjoying every paragraph.

I think anyone who loves sports, especially baseball, or just the St. Louis Cardinals would enjoy this book, and be amazed at the talent this young man has, and what he has accomplished.

I received a copy of this book from BookSneeze, to read and review. No other compensation was given.
