The summer of 1956 starts out like any other summer for 15-year-old Henry Pederson: hot, long and boring. That all changes when Jenny Sarsky and her family move into the house three doors down. From the moment their eyes meet, an earthly attraction unites their hearts while the spiritual energy traveling the length of the gaze they share joins their souls--spinning a web of love that transcends time and Heaven itself.Mr. Engelmann, an endearing and wise mentor living out the word of God, comes into Henry's life, providing him with powerful insights and valuable life lessons that carry strength, wisdom and hope, making this story both a heart-wrenching romance and an uplifting journey of spiritual discovery.Characters so real that their sadness, tears and joys fly off the pages and become ever-entrenched in the mind and heart of the reader.
Pewter Angels, the first book of "The Angelic Letters" series, starts Henry and Jenny and their families on an inspiring yet tumultuous journey through life's struggles and victories, and the miracle of deep, enduring love. Their 50-year spiritual odyssey becomes an experience long remembered; a hard-to-put-down story spanning five novels with an ending that surprises and satisfies beyond the reader's most wishful imaginings. Pewter Angels will grab your heart, squeeze it and hold it to the very last page.
Pewter Angels is now in its fifth printing and a Canadian best seller with over 15,000 copies in circulation since May 2010
