Angels Watching
Memoirs of a Country Girl from Wakarusa

Published November 2, 2007 by AuthorHouse .
Written in English.

About the Book

Angels Watching follows the unlikely pathway of a shy little country girl from a small town in Indiana as she breaks out of the mold in which life has placed her, becomes the first of her family to go to college, follows a call to mission, greets life's joys and weathers its sorrows with faith, tenacity and wit, and continues to welcome new challenges as she approaches her eightieth birthday and looks forward to her one hundredth.
With humor and reverence she tells of growing up poor in a large family where "dysfunctional was normal" - but where love, loyalty, hard word and ingenuity won out. With help both seen and unseen, she and her family survived the Depression and World War II, childhood diseases, youthful impetuosity, hazards of the modern world, and the losses that come with growing older. She tells of her first angel sighting as a child, and of many times since then when she knew that angels were watching over her.

First Sentence
