Angel Sister is a sweet story set in 1936, the Depression era, and is about the Merritt family. This family is struggling with some serious issues. Then along comes Lorena Birdsong, a little girl abandoned on the steps of a church in the Merritt’s hometown. Lorena’s mother told her to sit and wait for an angel to rescue her.
This book is about family, about life during a difficult time but no matter the time warp it can resonate a powerful message to all of us. When the going gets tough, families stick together. A worn torn war veteran, an alcoholic, a struggling marriage, estranged parents, children and grandparents, quarreling siblings, power hungry men and dictators are all a part of this story. Who among us does not know someone in one of these situations?
Then along comes a god-fearing angel with childlike faith to live out scripture and capture the hearts of many. This endearing story will make you cry. I know because I did. Love, forgiveness and perseverance are once again popular themes.
