What readers are saying:
‘I couldn’t stop—I read into the wee hours.’
A stunning debut, skillfully crafted.’
‘King has captured the essence of angels.’

Once I read the opening poem I knew I had my hands on something very special.

This is a beautiful, heartwarming story where tragedy turns to hope, love, redemption and second chances. 

Meredith is the main character and the story revolves around her ability to whisper or encourage living people to make good choices. She is a kind soul and I really loved watching her evolve and harness her otherworldly powers to effect positive change in the lives of those she loves.
There were quite a few characters to keep track of but I liked each one and enjoyed flitting from one to the next as Meredith dipped in and out of their daily lives. Each person needed Meredith's help in some way whether it was a nudge in their love life, making new friends, reconnecting with family or keeping on the straight and narrow. She certainly had her work cut out for her. 
The mystery and the twists and turns took me by surprise and I found that I really couldn't put this book down. 
The epilogue was short and sweet and it ended the story on a very positive, high note. 
This rarely happens to me because of a lengthy TBR pile, but as soon as I finished this book it left me with the feeling of wanting to start at the beginning and enjoy the story all over again.
