Betty Collier's Angel In My Room is a heart warming, emotionally moving story of hope and life. I hardly ever read these kinds of books, but once in a while I will, and this one just reached out, gripped me and never let go. Ms. Collier's ability to take profound moments in reality and put them into such emotionally packed words is absolutely incredible.
Do you have an angel in your life? I do. My blessed grandfather, whom I consider my best friend, passed away on December 18, 2010, and there have been times since then that I can feel his presence all around me. Little things here and there leave me to believe that he is still here. Ms. Collier takes an incident in life, something that happened to her aunt, and turns it into a testimony of life for her readers.
When Ms. Collier's aunt has a child who dies after birth, he returns to her in the form of an angel. It's a testimony that in tragic times there is still something that can move you, something that can give you hope and faith. A strong message of pushing forward and moving on is superbly evident in the writing of Ms. Collier.
I can definitely say that this is one of the best written memoir stories I've read to date. It's a shorter memoir, but packs such emotion and lessons that it's so much more than just a quick, moving read. This is most definitely a 5 star book and one that I will turn back to many times in my life as I face any tragedies or simply have a bad day, knowing that all I have to have is hope and faith to help me through it.
