Brush of Angel's Wings
I finished the book a while ago, but couldn't get near the computer for a bit, till today. I kept my notes on the book in my cell, so i wouldn't forget what to write
about from within the novel.
So the book has a Dutch glossary in the beginning which really helps out with certain words, though most are pretty straight foward just spelled differently, there are a few which if it didn't have this you would have to try and guess at their meanings.
Rachel is a 20 year old woman and has never been courted after as of yet. She is going to ask guidance from god about becoming a teacher (who is an unmarried woman that teaches the kids). She races her buggy into a ditch.
Jordon doesn't really believe in god. Him and Rachel get into a buggy race in the beginning. The horses got spooked by a semi and you find out that they both have the same guardian angel (named Nathaniel) and an envy angel (named Tangus)
Rachel has 3 Sisters (Sadie, Fanny, and Iva) and had 1 brother (James). Jordon gets a job with Rachel's father and she thinks that he is filling her brothers place in his heart, and her place on the farm.
Sadie has a beautiful little girl named Ella Sue but when a disaster happens, RAchel feels she must take over looking after the baby. But soon realizes why that shouldn't happen.
Hope this is enough info to get you interested in reading this book. It is a great Amish book to read. I really enjoyed reading it and hope others will too.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
Rachel and Jordan's feelings for each other are hostile at first, but angelic intervention helps the two discover peace . . . and perhaps love.
The youngest and last unmarried of four sisters, Rachel Hartlzer spends most of her time helping with barn chores. Her role abruptly changes when her father hires Jordan Engles, the son he always wanted.
As Jordan takes on brotherly roles around the house, like escorting Rachel to the youth singing, the enmity between the two grows. Besides, Jordan has one foot in the Englisch world and is determined not to get involved with an Amish girl.
Neither realizes that God has sent an angel, Nathaniel, to help mend their hearts. The angel’s intervention helps them find peace and healing in accepting God's will for their lives.
