My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I was provided with a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was a book on faith and divinity in a different way. The book revolves around Bo, who's mourning from a recent grief. He is a widower and misses his wife awfully. Gabby is a beautiful and mesmerising angel who's on the earth with a mission - to battle evil and help people in distress and peril. As dainty and fragile as she seems, she is naturally made to be strong enough in order to handle evil as well as wage wars. When she enters Bo's life to help him, she helps Bo go back in time to speak to his wife. Gabby' wisdom also serves Bo to understand philosophical ideologies behind, life, death, loss, immortality and acceptance. Bo finds himself getting drawn towards Gabby, not paying heed to Gabby's warnings to not let himself fall in love with her.
The book has an interesting take on theological beliefs in the context of paranormal phenomena. The characterisation is handled fairly well - Gabby being an angel, doesn't come with human flaws. Although this is maybe argued as being idealist, but this is exactly what the author is trying to achieve - to portray a character that has the best understanding about spirituality and the ways of life. The points sometime seem slightly repetitive and looped, which might not appeal to the reader.
I would recommend this book to spiritually-inclined readers. There's a fair amount of portions in the book that deal with theology, divinity and faith. So it may not be suited for if it does fit with your belief principles and systems.
