Publisher's Summary

Alone at Christmas, Greg Bennett feels his life has been a waste. Sixty years old and he has no one to spend Christmas with, no one who cares.

Greg knows he's made mistakes, hurt people, failed in all the ways that matter. As a young man, he fathered a child he never acknowledged. He deserted a friend in his hour of need. He abandoned his own brother, whom he hasn't seen in years.

Listlessly wandering the streets of San Francisco, Greg finds himself in a church, and whispers a simple heartfelt prayer. A prayer that finds its way to the Archangel Gabriel who assigns angels Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy, to Greg Bennett's case. Because Gabriel knows full well that Greg's going to need the assistance of all three!

Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy are determined to create a miracle for Greg. In their usual inimitable way, they are set to show him what life, joy, and Christmas are all about!

Touched by the angels? Don't miss the sequel: Where Angels Go. And don't miss Audible's exclusive interview with Debbie Macomber!

    "cute holiday read"

    a wonderful if predictable book. Scrooge like man who has lived his whole life hurting people, his family and friends winds up tying up all the loose ends in his life thanks to angels. Not everything ends happily, but he has closure on his life.

    The narrator was wonderful to listen to, and it was a most enjoyable listen, even if it was predictable. Lovely holiday read

    "More of the same."
    Any additional comments?

    Feel good Christmas read. I have found some better Christmas reads, but, if fixing broken people is your thing these are great books for you. Who doesn't love sappy Christmas books. Tis the Season.
