Publisher's Summary

When Alissa Parker lost her daughter Emilie in the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting, she started a life-changing journey to answer soul-searching questions about faith, hope, and healing. As she sought for the peace and comfort that could help mend her broken heart, she learned, step by step, how to open her heart to God's grace and will.

One step brought her face to face with the shooter's father, where in a pivotal and poignant meeting, she was given an opportunity to forgive. Another step brought her into the sheltering compassion of her community as family, friends, and even strangers reached out to buoy her up with their shared faith. And several miraculous manifestations of Emilie's continued presence and influence lifted her heart and will validate the faith of every Christian.

The story of Alissa and Emilie reminds us that the bonds of love continue beyond this life and that despite tragedy and heartache, we can find strength in our family and our faith.

Great book

i really enjoyed this book. The author really takes you on a journey of emotions to give you an insight into the despair, anger, grief, pain and forgiveness her family endured. It made me believe I can endure my own challenges. This book helped strenthen my belief that I can overcome anything through our Savior and his love.

Awe inspiring and glorious♥️

This book touched my heart so deeply that I want every young mother in my life to have it! We get so caught up in every day living that we forget who these beautiful young spirits are that are sent to us from heaven. It was a great reminder to me to stop and listen and enjoy every minute of my grandchildren. Thank you for sharing this beautiful story and making it available on Audible!

A Sacred, Powerful, Healing Book

What I learned and experienced while listening to An Unseen Angel can only be described as sacred. Without using any hyperbole, I can honestly say that An Unseen Angel is the most heartwarming and healing book I have ever read. Yes, Alissa wrote and spoke about darkness and tragedy. But more than anything else, Alissa talked about light and hope. Five stars!

Heartbreaking and Uplifting

Any additional comments?

This story is heart wrenching but so uplifting at the sametime. It was a good reminder that we are not alone, that people want to love and help carry you when you are broken.

Must read

Listening to this book has changed me. I have teenage daughters that I am going to have listen to this as well. Alissa and her family have inspired me to be more faithful, to serve more and most importantly to love more. You can't describe the feelings you have listening to this. You just have to hear every word for yourself. Beyond touching.
