Angels Walking- Karen Kingsbury

 Back of the Cover: 

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes the first in a brand-new series about second chances—a dramatic story about a washed up baseball player, the love he left behind, and the miracles that might save them both.

When former national baseball star Tyler Ames suffers a career-ending injury, all he can think about is putting his life back together the way it was before. He has lost everyone he loves on his way to the big leagues. Then just when things seem to be turning around, Tyler hits rock bottom. Across the country, Tyler’s one true love Sami Dawson has moved on.

A series of small miracles leads Tyler to a maintenance job at a retirement home and a friendship with Virginia Hutcheson, an old woman with Alzheimer’s who strangely might have the answers he so desperately seeks.

A team of Angels Walking take on the mission to restore hope for Tyler, Sami, and Virginia. Can such small and seemingly insignificant actions of the unseen bring healing and redemption? And can the words of a stranger rekindle lost love? Every journey begins with a step.

It is time for the mission to begin…

My Review: 

As always, Karen Kingsbury does not disappoint. This book was different than many of her other books, but I truly enjoyed it. I loved the different perspective of angels being present in this book. Tyler Ames is a national baseball hero, but when he throws a pitch that throws out his arm, he learns that he is off the team and is thrown on a new course of life that he wasn't prepared for. With less than $500 in his bank account, he has to figure out what his next move is. His surgery is not covered, he is no longer employed, he is homeless and worse, he is on pain killers. Tyler is feeling stuck, but knowing that he has to do something to get himself out of the situation. Willing to do anything, he is desperate for a miracle. His miracle begins when he meets a woman name Virgina. Virgina is just the beginning of his miracle who helps him realize that God's grace can cover all mistakes. Not only is Virgina a blessing to him, but Tyler becomes a blessing to Virigina's life and her daughter, Cheryl. The miracles continue and end with Sami, a teenage love. To find out more, you'll have to read this book for yourself! I've already given you a lot of details!
