Proof of Angels: A Novel by Mary Curran Hackett

Publish November 4, 2014 by William Morrow Paperbacks

Sean Magee is a firefighter—a hero who risks his own life to save others, running into dangerous situations few have the courage to dare. While fighting a horrific blaze, Sean becomes trapped by flames and is nearly overcome by smoke. Just when it seems that all is lost, he’s led to a window—by what he swears is divine intervention. And then he jumps . . .

. . . into a new life. For years, Sean has shut down his feelings, existing in a state of emotional numbness. Coming through that fire, he knows that he can no longer be that man whose his heart is closed to the world. But before he can face his future, he must confront his past and everyone in it: the family, the friends, the woman—and the love—he carelessly left behind.

My Thoughts...

Will this book make you cry?  Probably not, but it will touch your heart and move you to think about your life.   Will this book make you believe in Angels?   Maybe, I already believe in them but this book reiterated that even those who may not outright believe can still be touched by angels and made to believe. 

When I started this book, I was so ready for a touching story, without all the fluff and goo.    Proof of Angels is a touching story, but it also has some fluff and goo.    It has romance, tender love, strength, and belief.   It also has some strong males that think they know what they want and how to get there, until they don’t.    I enjoyed how the men seemed to take the leads and show each other how to make their lives better and what was missing from their respective lives.    The women were almost secondary characters in that they did not have huge parts in changing the story.    They  were still important and necessary to the story.  

Whether you believe or not, this is a great book.  I recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing read that will touch your heart.
