I'm obsessed with angels. I love the idea of them, their beauty, their place in the human world. This book was a recommedation. Honestly, when I saw the page count I cringed. It was huge (451). Okay maybe not so huge but more than I really wanted to read for a summer book. But I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It wasn't an easy read though. There were many times I had to go back and reread things. It had a lot of historical, religious, and biblical references. Not usually my thing.
