Book - Shirley, Goodness and Mercy

Frustrated with the way his life had turned out, Greg Bennett wondered the streets of San Francisco hoping to find a bank that would give him a loan. His third marriage was almost over, he was estranged from his only family, his business was about to fall apart before his eyes and it was Christmas. Low on hope for a happy season, he entered a church and prayed for the first time in a very long time. Hearing this man, making this plea to God, the prayer ambassador Archangel Gabriel was surprised and soon became concerned as to how to actually help him. The arrival of Angels Shirley, Goodness and Mercy may be the perfect way to handle this near impossible task and get the three most unpredictable angels out and allow them another opportunity to return to earth.

Shirley said “But remember we’re angels, not saints.”, that describes how they felt about taking on Greg and his life. With a whole bunch of miracles or coincides to help, could a change be possible for the man they describe as a scumbag, arrogant, selfish and conceited?

Ok, so I gave that one away ….. This is a short book, only 136 pages, but it is a ‘feel good’ type of story. Filled with hope, forgiveness, redemption, change, second chances and acceptance. All this at Christmas time, the time for miracles and love. I was surprised at the emotions that I felt for this story, this man. Rooting for the best to finally come out of him. I am undecided if I wanted more, sometimes the mystery of it plays better than description could have ever been. ( )
