Brush of Angel’s Wings by Ruth Reid
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Series: Heaven On Earth(Book 2)
Goodreads Summery: Rachel and Jordan’s feelings for each other are hostile at first, but angelic intervention helps the two discover peace . . . and perhaps love.
The youngest and last unmarried of four sisters, Rachel Hartlzer spends most of her time helping with barn chores. Her role abruptly changes when her father hires Jordan Engles, the son he always wanted.
As Jordan takes on brotherly roles around the house, like escorting Rachel to the youth singing, the enmity between the two grows. Besides, Jordan has one foot in the "Englisch" world and is determined not to get involved with an Amish girl.
Neither realizes that God has sent an angel, Nathaniel, to help mend their hearts. The angel’s intervention helps them find peace and healing in accepting God’s will for their lives.
Rachel is the last unmarried daughter and with the death of her only brother two years earlier she feels the reasonability to help her father in the barn and fields and she enjoys it more then doing woman’s work in the house. Her parents are worried that she is not going to find a husband if she is not working at improving her cooking and sewing skills. Her father hires Jordan who is not Amish but living with his Amish uncle for a while as his mom who had grown up Amish asked him right before she dies to give it a try. Rachel does not like Jordan and feels like her father is trying to replace her brother and does not want her to help and she becomes resentful.
Jordan is looking for work so he can earn enough money to go to trucking school and move on with his life now that his mom is dead. Even though he finds working with the Amish rewarding he does not plan to stay long in the community. Little do Rachel and Jordan know but Nathaniel the angel that two years ago causes such a stir is back to help them find their way. With Nathaniel watching over them will they over come their fears and anger to find forever together and with their heavenly father?
I really enjoyed this book. I admit I was curious when I read the first book in the series how angles where going to work in such a story line but its very good!
What I liked: I loved how the angle Nathaniel was incorporated in this book! In the first book he was very visible which caused quite a stir amount the community. With this book he was more heard but not seen. Parts of the story was told from the angles side and I thought it was really cool. I also really liked the two main characters. I really wanted them to find peace with God and happiness together.
What I did not like: There is not much I did not like with this book. The storyline with Rachel’s sister was really sad and the part where she was possibly going to marry another man felt a little forced and predictable.
Over all I really liked this book and look forward to the 3rd book of this series due out early next year. The author does a really great job of incorporating angles into the story line which makes for a unique reading adventure!
