Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Another great book by Andrea Rodgers! You will not regret diving into these well written, enjoyable and inspirational stories. This book (just like the previous one) is perfect even with a busy schedule, because you can read it one story at a time. The stories will leave you with a wonderful feeling and an appreciation for the good people that are out there. Highly recommended!
Andrea Jo Rodgers is a talented author and lifelong volunteer EMT who tells inspirational true stories with hope, faith, and empathy. I relished the book and read one story (there are thirty all together) each night. As I read the book, I felt like I was riding in the ambulance with the crew. I hope the author writes a third book!
I enjoy reading medical stories and I also like faith-based ones, so I loved "On Heaven’s Doorstep: God’s Help in Times of Crisis-True Stories from a First Responder." It’s the perfect balance of exciting drama, humor, and faith. I especially enjoyed the stories in which victims were resuscitated. This book was every bit as good as the author’s first book, "At Heaven’s Edge." I have the utmost respect for our first responders who work so hard to keep us safe.
I enjoyed the first book by this author (At Heaven’s Edge: True Stories of Faith and Rescue), so I was happy to discover there was a sequel. I read the book cover to cover within three days and thoroughly enjoyed it. Many of the true stories in this book are exciting, and a few made me laugh out loud. The author has a gift of making you feel like you are right there in the heart of the action. Through it all, you feel the quiet presence of God’s love for us all.
This book is a wonderful continuation of the exciting and emotional stories of Andrea's first book. The stories are engaging and full of love and hope. You will find yourself thinking about the people in these stories for days after reading their stories. It really highlights the heroic efforts of the selfless EMTs who are always there to help people in need, no matter what the hour.
