The chase was over. In April 1969, nineteen-year-old Jerry Shepherd stares in his rearview mirror at the two policemen approaching his car. He wants to run, make his escape, perhaps his final escape from life. Then he curls his fingers around the small Bible in his back pocket as the words Peace be still whisper through his head. He holds to those words as he steps from the car to handcuffed and arrested.
Angels at the Crossroads is the compelling true story of Shepherd's amazing journey from wrongdoing to redemption. Convicted of a crime he can hardly believe he could have committed, Shepherd faces life in prison and fears not only that he won't survive behind bars, but also that he has stepped beyond the hope of prayer or forgiveness. His parents say no as they cover him with fervent prayers, but Shepherd must find his own way through the jungle of prison life to the people - earth angels - who can help him discover God's love knows no limit. On this pilgrimage to self-acceptance, Shepherd learns to forgive the past and completely and unconditionally love again.
If you face a crossroads in your life, Shepherd's inspirational journey may help lead you down a new pathway to a life filled with compassion and love.

This is a good motivating story to people who may not always see life clearly. A young man with everything to lose turns his life around in prison where afterwards he takes his first step to rewarding life. A little redundant in some parts but overall a good inspirational read.
This book is a clear reminder that God places angels at every crossroad in your life and you may not know it until much later but He helps to guide you in the path you need to travel. It is not always the straightest or easiest path but if we let go and let God we have a beautiful result. My dad whom this story is about is my example of that everyday.
