Publication Date: 2016

Format:Print book

Length: 326 pages


Brush of wings is the third book in the Angels Walking Series. This reviewer read the first but not the second yet had no trouble catching up with the story. Despite needing a heart transplant, Mary Catherine moves to Uganda to work in an orphanage, fulfilling a lifelong dream. She leaves Marcus Dillinger, her true love, behind, although no one, including Marcus, knows of her heart condition. Back at home her friends Tyler and Sami are planning their wedding and helping Lexi, a pregnant teenager who was once the girlfriend of a gang leader. A band of angels watches over each one and the various scenarios in their lives but they must go into full force when Mary Catherine’s condition becomes drastic and she needs to return immediately to the States.

This is a sweet, albeit predictable, story with a strong Christian worldview, definitely a trademark of Kingsbury’s writing.  The angel element puts me off a little but may be highly appealing to many readers.
