Review: I honestly don't remember what made me click that request button on NetGalley. I most certainly was not expecting the story I got. Usually I hate surprises like that, but this time I was so sucked in, I read it in one night.
This person looked healthy, content. She filled out her clothes and had thick, shiny hair and a fuller face. She didn't have dark circles under her yes or sunken cheeks. Her skin was a blend of peaches and pinks instead of a sickly grey. This woman was... pretty, I had to admit.
"Do you..." I swallowed, "believe in angels?" She glanced at me somewhat quizzically, but not so much I regretted asking.
She thought for a minute. "I'm not sure. In my mind, it's more believeable that there's some greater power up there who created everything, than to think there was a big explosion and bam, here we were. Or that after we die, that's it, there's nothing more, just an empty void. I just can't believe that. So it's logical to me that if there's a God, and there's heaven, then there must be angels."
