#BookReview :: Angels in Our Lives (The Pearl Makers 0.5) by Melissa Storm

The animals in our lives are often just angels in disguise.

Six-year-old Emily needs a miracle if she’s ever to walk again. Luckily, her protector angel refuses to leave her side. In fact, she comes to Emily as a golden retriever puppy named Lulu, so that she may stay close by as the little girl struggles through recovery.

Emily and Lulu quickly become inseparable, accomplishing together what everyone believed impossible. As the years pass, Emily grows into a strong young woman while Lulu simply grows old.

Will Emily lose her angel?

This special tale of friendship is sure to bring comfort and peace to anyone who has ever mourned the loss of a beloved pet.

I recently had the chance to listen to the audiobook version of the story. It is amazing.

Emily is a sweet six year old kid who loses the use of her legs and doctors say that it would take a miracle to get her walking again. Luckily for Emily she has her guardian angel looking after her tirelessly and she enters Emily’s life in form of a golden retriever dog. Once Lulu is officially a part of the family, Emily can be a carefree child again. But slowly the miracle does happen but as time passes by, Lulu grows old and the inevitable separation grows closer by the day.

I am a dog lover to the core and often love them more than some people even. So hearing an audiobook that involves a do absolutely made my day. I am not sure if I actually believe in guardian angels, but I do believe in a dog’s unconditional love and the comfort they bring into their household. They can really work miracles and I have seen it happen more than once. So needless to say, this book touched my heart in all the right ways. The author’s narrative brought the story to life and I really loved her narrative style in this one.

In short this is a short novella that will take about an hour to read at the maximum and is very touching. MUST READ!
