Editorial Reviews

As a little girl, Jackie Torrence was fascinated with angels, the spirits who look after people. In this collection of particular interest to adults, she shares stories of special people in her life. Some are family stories from rural North Carolina. Others are experiences from her storytelling career. Torrence's resonant voice engages the listener and the gentle pace of the tales compels attention. The stories are very personal, but offer lessons for a broad audience - each listener hearing them in their own sphere.

Publisher's Summary

One of America's most beloved storytellers tells of spirits that have nurtured her in these four tales: "The Accidental Angel", "Wilbur Martin: God's Maintenance Man", "The Water Lilies", and "Angels in Disguise". Jackie Torrence, a frequent headliner at the National Storytelling Festival, is known to audiences nationwide as The Story Lady. She has performed at the Kennedy Center, Wolftrap, the International Children's Festival, and Lincoln Center.
