An Unexpected Angel

An Unexpected Angel

by Janet Halling

Paperback115 pages
Published October 9th 2012 by Sweetwater Books

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Ella Davies hates Christmas. Every year she spends the holidays working, trying to forget the pain of a childhood tragedy that left her all alone. But this season, Ella's about to learn something only an angel could teach her. This modern twist on a Christmas classic will remind you that the best gifts of all are the loved ones you learn to treasure!


I really enjoyed this wonderful holiday story!  While reminiscent of Dicken's A Christmas Carol, it's original and modern.  Ella's story is a reminder to remember priorities and what's really important to each of us.  I loved the variety of the characters and how they interacted with Ella.  She learned more about herself while reaching out to those around her and found healing through service.  A charming story!  I want to read this one again!

4/5 stars
