When former national baseball star Tyler Ames suffers a career-ending injury, all he can think about is putting his life back together the way it was before. He has lost everyone he loves on his way to the big leagues. Then just when things seem to be turning around, Tyler hits rock bottom. Across the country, Tyler’s one true love Sami Dawson has moved on.
A series of small miracles leads Tyler to a maintenance job at a retirement home and a friendship with Virginia Hutcheson, an old woman with Alzheimer’s who strangely might have the answers he so desperately seeks.
A team of Angels Walking take on the mission to restore hope for Tyler, Sami, and Virginia. Can such small and seemingly insignificant actions of the unseen bring healing and redemption? And can the words of a stranger rekindle lost love? Every journey begins with a step.
It is time for the mission to begin…
Hebrews 13:2 Do not neglect to show kindness to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels unaware.
This verse is written on the stud of our home by our kitchen sink. I wonder if this was Karen's verse as she penned this book, or what gave her the idea for the book, maybe both.
Tyler Ames wants to be a pitcher in the major leagues, but a injury in the minors sets him on a course that he never saw coming.
Virginia is a resident at Merrill Place where Tyler becomes a maintenance man to save up money for surgery on his shoulder, which wasn't covered through the minor league team. Virginia is stuck in 1970 and thinks Tyler is her son Ben.
Each of the characters in this book are in need of a miracle, and God sends angels to assist with the task. In true Karen Kingsbury style she pens a book that tugs at your heartstrings and takes hold of your soul. I have always enjoyed Karen's books, however this one will remain with me for a long time.
I have had an encounter with an angel, October 1994. I was living in Hawaii, and I had a seizure at a stop light causing my car to stall, a woman showed up at my car door, she had called 911 and waited until the medical team arrived, and then she was gone. The EMT's tried to find her and she was no where to be found. I know that she was an angel who was sent to care for me that day.
