Maxine has always been fascinated by the locked armoire in her grandmother’s room. When her grandmother dies, Maxine inherits the key. She has to search for it. When she finds it and opens the door, she’s surprised to find the only thing on the shelves is a beautiful feather. Puzzled and slightly disappointed, she picks it up and a glittering angel appears.
The angel is her guardian angel. When asked what she most wants, Maxine confesses that she wants to know her purpose in life. With this goal, they set out on an adventure. The angel shows her wonderful things and terrible things. Through all these experiences, Maxine understands that God has a plan. Some things can be changed, but the important thing she learns is to accept God’s plan.
I could not warm up to the main character. Maxine seemed too much the good girl, expecting always to be the chosen one. I found this somewhat repellent and some of the adventures boring. However, the book is not difficult to read and the over all spiritual journey is interesting.
If you enjoy Christian stories about angels and the magic of the universe, this is a well done book. The adventures Maxine goes on show both the beauty and the tragedy of the world. It’s an enjoyable journey and a quick read.
I received this book from PR by the book for this review.
