Angels Come in All Shapes & Sizes is written by Hevine Schmidt. The book is a heartwarming tale of the author's experiences and life with animals. It allows for the reader to get better acquainted with animal reactions, tendencies, and mannerisms they may not have been familiar with. This book also allows for readers to explore the possibility that there is "more than meets the eye" when it comes to animals.
Hevine Schmidt has shared the loving, emotional, and spiritual experiences she has obtained throughout her life with animals. Throughout her story, each animal seems to connect with her on a higher level, but only to serve a purpose of warning, good or bad. The author tells about individual animal stories and how they in one way or another affected their lives deeply. For example: Her cat Velcro seems to know when the phone is going to ring and gives a warning by meowing just before it does ring. Or Velcro has been able to notice when an animal is going to pass onto the next life by staring just above his head for a while, and then shortly after stopping, that animal soon did pass on. Just as those who believe people can become angels, Hevine believes animals make their presence known and become angels too.
The author's love for her animals stands out greatly in this book. The emotional connection with each of them is divine and inspiring. As some people have a special inexplicable gift, some of her animals did as well. There is so much we as humans don't know about the animal species, so who's to say their emotional and intellectual abilities aren't endless? This book is a great read for all readers, young and old, who believe in extraordinary animal abilities and in angels.
