Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times and international best-selling authors of An Invisible Thread comes a heartwarming and inspiring book about the incredible impact that acts of kindness from strangers can have on the world around us.

One day in 1986, Laura Schroff, a busy ad sales executive, passed an 11-year-old boy panhandling on the street. She stopped and offered to take him to McDonald's for lunch. Twenty years later, at Laura's 50th birthday party, Maurice Mayzck gave a toast, thanking Laura for her act of kindness, which ended up changing the course of his life. In that toast, Maurice said that when Laura stopped on that busy street corner all those years ago, God had sent him an angel.

Laura's invisible thread journey has deepened her belief that angels - divine and otherwise - are all around us. After An Invisible Thread was published in 2011, audiences from around the country and world began sharing with Laura their own stories about how chance encounters with strangers have changed their lives. From a woman who saved a life simply by buying someone a book, to a financier who gave a stranger the greatest gift of all, to a teacher who chose a hug over discipline and changed a lost boy's future - Angels on Earth will introduce a series of remarkable people whose invisible thread stories will move, surprise, and inspire. Angels on Earth sheds light on how each of us can live happier, more purposeful lives through sharing acts of kindness.

I didn't think "Invisible Thread" could be topped.

Another great read by Laura Schroff! Truly inspirational. This is a book (like "Invisible Thread") I will buy a few copies of to give to my family and friends. Thank you for sharing Miss Laura!

very cheesy at times and at others over dramatic

The book is interesting at times most of the time though it's very cheesy and overdramatic interesting storyline but if you've read An Invisible Thread so much as regurgitated into this book.

Wonderful book.

I got a copy of the hardcover for a friend who teaches 3rd graders. If everyone could only read this beautiful book. Just one more person reading it will change the world, their world, your world.
