I loved this book completely. The book tells the story of angel who just hasn't quite got the hang of what he is supposed to do. He has so many questions about being an angel, but the only other angels he has met, have been far too busy helping people pass over to Heaven. Angel keeps going about his business, watching the world go by, until Zola steps in his world. Zola is a head strong child, who can see Angel. Zola sets about turning Angel into a proper angel and between them they both help the little town, come back to life.
The book is written in the voice of the angel and it is quite charming as Angel struggles with long and complicated words and often gets in a muddle. Angel is always worrying about what he is doing and gets fed up with Zola constantly bossing him around.
A beautiful children's book that will delight adults and children alike.

I am determined to read more non fiction this year and this wonderful uplifting book fitted the bill beautifully.
Within the book, there are many stories of real life angel encounters. The stories range from miraculous messages, celestial visits to dramatic rescues. I have no idea if any of them are true, but I finished the book feeling warm and cozy. My soul really felt uplifted and I felt even more convinced that we have angels looking out for us.
If you are feeling down and it seems like all your problems are weighing heavily on your shoulders, then I would definitely suggest you read this book. You will come away thinking someone out there actually cares and your problems will definitely feel lighter.
And finish. Three reviews all wrapped up in one post. Bring it on March!Favourite book out of the three would definitely be The Unfinished Angel; a lovely read that won't take you long to finish.
