Angels at the Table: A Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy Christmas Story by Debbie Macomber
About Debbie Macomber
The #1 New York Times bestselling author is best known for her ability to create compelling characters and bring their stories to life in her books. Drawing on her own experiences and observations, Debbie writes heartwarming tales about small-town life, home and family, enduring friendships and women who knit. Every book features the delightful sense of humor for which readers around the world clamor. Not bad for a woman who is dyslexic and didn't learn to read until she was in the fifth grade.
Being dyslexic did not deter the young mother of four from pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming published. She celebrated her first sale in 1982 when Silhouette Books acquired her manuscript, Heartsong. The book became the first category romance ever to be reviewed by Publishers Weekly. She was soon featured in Newsweek—and demand for her books quickly exceeded her wildest dreams.
Debbie is the author of the popular Cedar Cover series, Blossom Street series, and the Angel series. In 2012, she launches the Inn at Rose Harbor series.
What a delightful read. When I read why Debbie added Will...the Prayer Ambassador, I was hooked. Psalm 23:6, " Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever."
Of course anytime Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy get together, and add in the trainee Will, mayhem will happen. You will be giggling with each little oops that happens. A very uplifting, feel good, and delightful read. You don't want this one to end. Can you picture a camel waking itself down the street? Beware this one is going to hit your funny bone! Of course disaster follows...um remember "to many cooks, spoil the pot"! Good lessons to be learned.
Grab a copy of this great Holiday read, don't miss these Angels...they might just brush by you!
I receive a copy of this book through the Publisher Ballantine Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
