My Review
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.   Eddie Santiago had a really difficult childhood.  Being bullied and harassed because he was different.  He spends a long time watching his mother suffering in pain, and hating God for his circumstances.  This is an amazing supernatural story of his journey, finding his faith and learning that God really does care.  It was beautifully written and I cried many times over reading it, so be sure to have Kleenex handy.

I was so moved by this book.  I could relate to so much of what he went through.  Children can be really mean to someone just because they are different.  Then you pray and wonder if He’s listening, after all He’s God, doesn’t he have bigger problems to deal with?  Eddie may have hated God at some point, but God always had his angels watching over him.  This book shows how Eddie grew spiritually and continues to grow, reaching out to others.  Thank you, Mr. Santiago, for sharing your story with me.  I hope many are blessed by it and their faith renewed.
