Millie's Angel: Just Imagine by Kim Petersen is a family saga, a story about family secrets, hurts, and the liberating power of love. When Millie comes home and discovers that her mother has been badly hurt, she believes it could be the worst day for her family — she doesn’t know who could do such a thing. But it is when her mother decides to leave that life completely changes for her family. She has to live with a father who has a mysterious, dark pallor shrouding his countenance, take care of her kid brother, and face the challenges of everyday life, of falling in love and getting hurt. But something else is happening as she struggles to make sense out of her life. She develops a connection with an angelic gift that will play a wonderful role in the life of her family.

Millie's Angel: Just Imagine is a heartwarming, spiritually rich, and inspirational story that has a lot of realism in it, a story that will uplift and empower readers and remind them to never lose hope when things go wrong. Kim Petersen has crafted a very beautiful story around the growth and journey towards inner freedom of a young girl. It features very compelling themes, including love and friendship, family secrets, the miracle of generously embracing one’s gifts, and the purpose of life. Petersen’s writing flows sweetly — like drippings of honeycomb. The internal conflict created within the protagonist is equally powerful and it helps to pull readers in. This is an exciting story in which the reader will find something of themselves.

Millie's Angel: Just Imagine by Kim Petersen is an inspirational novel that tells the story of Millie and a family that is both cursed and blessed. Abandoned by her mother in disturbing circumstances, Millie grows up relying on her own strength and the comfort that comes from a friend and a guy who has smitten her heart. Can she forgive her mother for abandoning her? And what about her father, a man whose presence is as threatening as it is incomprehensible, a man she loves dearly, too? It isn’t until ten years later that her mother makes contact again, and Millie has matured into a responsible woman, and developed a powerful and uplifting bond with an angelic vision. But why did she leave? What happens after her return to Millie’s life? Here is a story that features family secrets, an extraordinary gift, love and friendship, and redemption.

Kim Petersen has crafted a very inspiring tale around an angel, a young girl, and a troubled family. The story starts with a dramatic incident that will affect the way Millie sees life and her family — an attack on her mother. Watching a young girl take responsibility over her kid brother while living with an unpredictable father is heartbreaking, but such is the reality in the story and it helps to create the conflict that will drive it. The writing is tight and the descriptions are vivid. Millie's Angel features compelling characters and readers will find some resonances with each of the characters. They are well-explored around the themes of friendship and love, spirituality, hatred, and dark secrets. It is a great story with an awesome finish.
