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!

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
I have purchased all of the angels books. And while I really enjoy Debbie Macomber's books and did like this story, I was disappointed with the angel's behaviors in this one. They were beyond mischievous!
What I enjoyed the least in this one was the Angel Gabriel's voice, I could never have imagined he would sound like that!
I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
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.
