Brush of Angel's Wings

Book description: Rachel and Jordan's feelings for each other are hostile at first, but angelic intervention helps the two discover peace . . . and perhaps love.
The youngest and last unmarried of four sisters, Rachel Hartlzer spends most of her time helping with barn chores. Her role abruptly changes when her father hires Jordan Engles, the son he always wanted.
As Jordan takes on brotherly roles around the house, like escorting Rachel to the youth singing, the enmity between the two grows. Besides, Jordan has one foot in the Englisch world and is determined not to get involved with an Amish girl.
Neither realizes that God has sent an angel, Nathaniel, to help mend their hearts. The angel’s intervention helps them find peace and healing in accepting God's will for their lives.

My review: This is another book that I really enjoyed reading, but I am not sure I like all of the book. I enjoyed the story as well as the characters. I'm just not sure how I feel about the angels. They did add some depth and understanding to the story. However, it would seem the author, Ruth Reid, has attributed the work of the Holy Spirit to an angel. I think I understand why she chose to include the angels, I just do not agree with the way they are portrayed. I enjoy reading Amish stories and have read quite a few by several different authors. I am looking forward to reading more by Ruth Reid. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze blogger program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
