review 1: My first impression when I first picked up this book was: Is this an inspirational story about a mysterious person doing random acts of kindness?So I snuggled into bed and turned to the first page and read.All at once, I was whisked into a boy's world where he struggled with previous life's choices and made the commitment to walk brighter pathways. Suddenly, he is faced with many trials that could possibly lead him into relapses while others believe he has lost his way. It wasn't until I was five pages into the story that I realized that I did not know his name! As soon as that thought hit me, I put the book down, surprised.Yes, Kathi is that good a writer. I felt as if I knew Micah Conners already without the introduction of his name. I was already drawn into the story, t... morehe characters, the setting, the theme. I was hooked.As I read, I hoped that Micah would make good choices so as to avoid the heartache of consequences that follow from poor decisions. I cheered him when he had the strength to walk away from potentially precarious situations. I wept with him when his heart broke from lost hope. My heart warmed for him when he finally found faith and peace in his shambled world.I am rather impressed with Kathi's gift of slipping into Micah's head and making him come alive. His emotions and thoughts and feelings remained true and so believable it had me laughing in certain parts and crying in others.Just as in real life, the closer Micah drew to his goal, the more tangled life became. With the stout heart of a warrior, he fought for his beliefs and grew stronger from them though he felt lost and alone and afraid.This story is so wrought with faith, courage, and strength, that I am making it a part of my family's Christmas celebration this year.So, where does the angel part come into play you ask? Find out for yourself and add this wonderful story to your family Christmas tradition!
review 2: An Angel On Main Street by Kathi Oram PetersonI have so enjoyed reading Christmas books this past few weeks and this little charmer hits a home run. An Angel On Main Street is about young Micah Connors, who wants to do everything he can to save his younger sister, Annie, who is very ill with a life threatening illness. With he, Annie and his mom just moved to a new town after his dad had died in the Korean War, he is seeing someone mysteriously putting up a large Nativity set in the middle of town. Micah seems to be angered over Sheriff Anderson's interest in his mother, and doesn't want that to happen. He gets worried as he sees more and more of the Nativity being set up, as he has promised to get the baby Jesus for his sister. He thinks he's got the needed money to buy a baby doll for his sister, but loses it before he really has it. It's not until he starts praying that things seem to fall into place and that a certain person is not who he appears to be, as looks and situations can be deceiving. Micah's sister had the faith to believe in the baby Jesus, and it would be that way for Micah as well. This little Christmas charmer will be a classic and should make a wonderful Hallmark film.Forever Friends Rating 5 Stars by TeriUntil Next Time, See You Around The Book Nook.Publisher: Covenant Communications, Inc.Published: October 200999pp less
