I was reading Angels Among Us at the same time as the Boston Marathon Bombings.  I am sure angels must have intervened in this situation or there would have been so many more casualties.  Why were people not in the blast area?  I am sure we will eventually hear stories from people who should have been there but something or someone caused them to change their plans.  Angels Among Us is a great compilation of 101 inspirational stories of miracles, faith and answered prayers.  So many stories with so many varied messages.  My favorite story was The Boy At The Pool.  That one really strikes home for me.  When I was a teenager (you know how kids horse around) - someone pushed me into a pool.  I remember hitting my head in the low section and thinking oh no!  I also remember thinking that it didn't feel like it should have - part of my head hit the concrete but part I could feel was cushioned by something that I assumed was someone's foot.  Next thing you know I am out of the pool with everyone freaking out.  I had a terrible headache.  A little while later I asked who's foot I landed on - was their foot okay?  Everyone looked at me like I had lost my mind - they insisted no one was in the pool when I was pushed in.  So if no one was in the pool - who cushioned my fall?  The stories in this book are similar to this experience.  Contents include Miraculous Interventions, Divine Messengers, Answered Prayers, Angels in Disguise, Faith in Action, Angelic Visitors, Healing Touches, Love From Beyond, Angel Guides and Angel Protection.   This is the perfect book to read at this time more than any other. So many tragic events in the United States right now.  This book has some very powerful messages and definitely a "feel good" book.  Totally deserves 5 stars.   I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is one of the most inspirational books I have read in a long time! I took one of the stories out of this book and read it in one of my church ladies meetings and they were so impressed with it!!!! I highly recommend this reading material to everyone!

I believe in angels. In fact, I contributed "Blue Bug Angel" to this edition of Chicken Soup for the Soul. After reading every story in Angels are Among Us, I am awed that so many of us are connected through angel expeiences. All the stories are wildly different and yet many of the stories reminded me of my own. I was particularly tickeled to read that angels drive cars. Read the book and you'll see. I already believed but this book made me think. I recommend it to non-believers and believers alike!
