Although one might find it hard to associate a `fairy tale¿ amidst world war two, this novel made it enticingly so with miracles & angels. This piece had succeeded in detaching it¿s readers from the terrifying possibility of death in a time of war, and inspiring courage, hope and a promise of love¿ Fantastically written!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked this book up. Some pop culture piece about angels? A serious 'Literary' work, the kind you ingest because it's good for you, like a bitter but beneficial herb? I thought the cover was quite lovely, but...I didn't expect what was inside to be so much more dynamic than its mere design. It's a wonderful book--one of the most gorgeously rendered books I've read lately. But it's also simple, concise, the language straightforward but full of pictures that bloom like the protagonist's startling black irises in the imagination. Yes, it IS about angels--but these are not goody-goody creatures who guide their human peers through trumped-up troubles and into the cheery but holy light. I don't want to give away what is written here, because the delight, the emotional impact, the beauty lies in watching the mystery unfold and probing it, thinking about it, teasing at it with your mind and heart--but I will say that these angels are a tough and tragic breed, and yet as sweet as the chocolate they crave. Read it; read it again. It's a small book, but there's so much in it.

In the Company of Angels is a light, frothy, book that combines fairytale with mystery. Instead of seeing 'dead people', like in The Sixth Sense, readers will see angels and wonder throughout the book if they are really there. It's a quick, but wonderful, read, which entices you to read it again quickly after you have read it through the first time.
