Brush of Wings

 
GIVEAWAY

KINGSBURY, KAREN
BRUSH OF WINGS

Despite needing a heart transplant, Mary Catherine moves to Uganda to work at an orphanage. The only problem is baseball player Marcus Dillinger, with whom she never meant to fall in love. Neither Marcus nor Mary Catherine's friends, Tyler Ames and Sami Dawson, know just how serious her condition is. Ultimately his correspondence with Mary Catherine leads him on a desperate mission to rescue her and get her to a US hospital. Meanwhile, Sami and Tyler struggle with issues of their own and the very core of their relationship is in jeopardy. The team of angels walking is busier than ever in this epic battle between life and death.

My Review:

The much anticipated conclusion to the Angels Walking series. You don't have to have read the first two books, but I think Brush of Wings will make more of an impact if you have. All the struggles of the previous stories come to fruition in this one and Mary Catherine is at the heart (pun intended) of it all.

And as much as I love Mary Catherine, I wanted to slap her silly through most of the read. For a young woman determined to live by faith she is intent on going her own way. A fault I can relate to -- I think we all can -- because, really, aren't there times in your life when you leave God out of the equation in case his plans are different from yours? :-)

Brush of Wings is the perfect showcase for the power of God and his ministering angels. I enjoyed catching a glimpse of Kingsbury's imaginative spiritual dimension and the special angels tasked with a difficult assignment. I cheered as they rallied around Marcus, Mary Catherine, Tyler, Sami and Lexi, engaging in spiritual warfare while the humans remain unaware. And, oh goodness, the power of prayer convicted me anew as I lost myself in this story. A stunning conclusion to an amazing series. I'd love to see this one on the big screen someday.
