This book is at turns humourous, bittersweet, happy...love the mix-up with the pastor! A good, gentle read.
A peaceful quiet read. Very good
"New tomatoes and old wounds. An identity crisis and a really bad toupee. From an angelic perspective, they're all miracles waiting to happen on the Island of Heavenly Daze."
I enjoyed reading this book, but it is pure entertainment, not a study in reality.
I enjoyed this book about 7 angels who protect those who live in the 6 original houses and church on the island named Heavenly Daze in Maine. There are a lot of people to keep straight, but by the end of the book I think I had it down. Parts of this book are LOL funny. This one shows what can happen when assumptions are made and secrets kept, even with good intentions. I'm going to read more of the series.
When I first started this book I wondered how it ever got published it was that bad, starting skimming thru and then got drawn into a lovely story. I have to agree this does remind of the Mitford Series which in my opinion was a 5 star plus.
The Heavenly Daze books are a must read! These stories portray an incredibly small New England town on a remote island where angels abide among the villagers to lend a "helping hand". These books made me feel good just to read them. They were very heartwarming, yet also showed the true "nature" of people and how frustrating it can be to live in a town where everybody knows everything about you! I would definitely recommend all of the books in this series. Each book relates a different story/situation about the people (and angels)who reside on the island and the reader becomes greatly attached to each resident. I couldn't wait to read the next book in this series!
A very enjoyable read about angels helping and protecting an island off the coast of Maine. All about the owners of the orginal 6 homes built on the island.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are well-defined and varied. They are sincere Christians, but not perfect. Even the preacher has his problems in keeping in the Lord's path. The angels are believable and the descriptions of heaven and the Lord's throne are within the scope of the imaginations we might have from Biblical references.
I highly recommend this book for light, relaxing reading.
This series of books is very much in the vein of Jan Karon's Mitford series or Gail Fraser's Lumby series. Gentle, whimsical read with a top-note of feel-good. Delightful and charming.
First in the Deavenly Daze Series.
This book is the introduction to the people who live on a small island off Maine, and the interesting, and unusual people who live there. The stories are clean, funny, and heartwarming at times, and the hard working residents go about their lives under the watchful eyes of some very special friends.
I was prepared to really enjoy this book. I loved the prologue in which the angels are sent to the island to help the folks through the years. A couple of them are seen in their human forms in the early stages, but I was disappointed that there wasn't more about them. While I could sympathize with the Pastor and his wife their just wasn't much character development around them, and I didn't really feel like I cared much about them. The other members of the island are confusing and most of them I found unlikeable. Was not able to finish it.
Loved this book and the series. It's not meant to be a fast pace, thriller. In fact, it's just the opposite. Relaxing, peaceful, humorous and feel good. It's one of the books where life revolves around a small town its citizens. When reading about their daily lives, you just want to crawl in the book and become one of them.
Fun story, and very heartwarming.
To a casual visitor, the island of Heavenly Daze is just like a dozen others off the coast of Maine. It is decorated with graceful Victorian mansions, carpeted with gray cobblestones and bright wild flowers, and populated by sturdy, hard-working folks-most of whom are unaware that the island of Heavenly Daze is not just like the other islands of coastal Maine. The small town that crowns its peak consists of seven buildings, each inhabited, according to divine decree, by an angel who has been commanded to guard and help anyone who crosses the threshold.
Unexpected hijinks and heart-warming results occur when mortals and immortals cross paths-and unaware visitors to the picturesque establishments of Heavenly Daze discover that they have been entertained by angels.
