Product description (Andrews McMeel Publishing):

Leslie Rule has spent over a decade researching spirits and has chronicled her paranormal tales in four previous nonfiction books, Coast to Coast Ghosts, Ghosts Among Us, When the Ghost Screams, and Ghost in the Mirror. With more than 150,000 copies sold, Rule builds upon her successful series of mystical works with Where Angels Tread.

Where Angels Tread presents startling cases of angelic intervention, carefully documented through research and interviews, and accompanied by 30 black-and-white photographs of the subjects. In addition to enjoying tightly written yet detailed stories, loyal readers will be pleased to see Rule’s trademark “In the News” sidebar articles where actual news accounts of angels and miracles are spotlighted.

From the case of an elderly woman pushed from a burning house by angelic hands, to the story of a four-year-old pedaling straight into the path of a speeding truck only to be stopped by an angel, Where Angels Tread presents phenomenal cases of divine intervention. Twelve chapters are divided by themes, including “Animal Miracles,” “Christmas Miracles,” and “Angels on the Road.”

An enticing foreword by best-selling author Ann Rule will whet readers’ appetites when she confides that an angel once saved her life.

My thoughts:

I’ve wanted to read one of Leslie Rule’s paranormal books for some time so, when Andrews McMeel Publishing offered one for review purposes, I jumped at the chance. Just in time for the holidays, Rule tackles the subject of angels.

Rule breaks up her book into 12 chapters (I liked the symbolic number). Each chapter is packed with scores of angelic stories. I was impressed by how smoothly she transitioned from one story to another. Each chapter is separated by quick and inspirational angel stories.

I would like to have seen some of the pictures in color and an index of the stories would have been helpful. All to often, I wanted to share one of the stories but struggled to find it.

All in all, it’s a fantastic read, I enjoyed every minute of it. I highly recommend it for anyone. Books like Where Angels Tread really make the holiday season magical.
