Did I Expect Angels?

This book was sent to me by the author, Kathryn Maughan, who is also a member of Book Blogs. Thank you Kathy!

I was so excited to read it, and I got it done in just over 24 hours. The story alternates between Jennifer and Henry. Jennifer, a 30-something mom, is at a crisis point in her life when Henry, a store greeter, steps in to help her. Henry has also been through tough times. An immigrant from Costa Rica, Henry has had to start his life from nothing.

I'm being intentionally vague about the plot, only because I love how the story unfolds between the two voices. It is an inspirational story because it reminds us that life is about valuing those we love. I love a book that makes me want to be a better person for having read it.

Did I Expect Angels? is a novel that will stick with me for awhile.
