"Troy’s Miracles" by Terry Lee Rambo is a book that many will find hard to believe and others will find heart lifting. In this small book of the author's memoirs she tells how, as the oldest of five children, she grew up in Kentucky with an abusive father. Never satisfied with her life, she was always seeking adventure and had held many jobs in her life, married three times and now divorced and single, raising two children. Her oldest son Troy was killed at the young age of 28 in an automobile accident and this is the basis for the book. As the old saying goes, parents are not supposed to bury their children but we all know that it happens. Having been raised as a devout Catholic, Terry soon learns that no matter what she did, Troy was with her. He had become her guardian angel on earth and her faith is restored.
This is a small book that I read in one sitting. I have always believed in Angels and that we all have a guardian angel watching over us. As I read some of the happenings that occurred after the death of her son I wondered how many incidents really came from her angel son and how many were coincidences. There is no doubt that I believe and know that we have a powerful God and he will do wonders. Having heard of many that have visited after death in my own family, I do not doubt the author. I just feel that maybe some things like a flower popping up in a field or a tree not producing fruits one year and other little episodes could be natural happenings of nature and not angel occurrences. The main thing is that her faith was restored, her grieving and broken heart was healed and she felt her son beside her almost all the time. Not only she but others in her family also felt him. I feel like anyone that has lost a child, a father, mother or any family member or even a close friend and then getting a spiritual uplifting after reading this book.
