"A story of finding love in unusual places"
Julia Quinn is a brilliant physicist who dreams of making
a name for herself in the world of science by discovering
how to make teletransportation work. Her life revolves
around her daughter, Emmi, and science, ever since her
husband died. Emmi's greatest dream is for God to give her
a new Daddy. Julia thinks her experiment is finally
perfected, and when she tests it, is in for quite a
surprise. Her equipment ends up capturing an angel! Emmi
is thrilled, believing Joel is the answer to her prayers
for a new daddy.
Now, they must figure out what went wrong so they can fix
it and return Joel to his proper existence before it is
too late and he's trapped forever. However, neither
expected that they'd capture each other's hearts in the
process, and they must now make a decision that could
change their lives for eternity.
This was a pleasant story about "what ifs" and dreams come
true, with a dose of inspirational thrown into the mix for
good measure. Julia is lonely in her life, but doesn't
realize it quite so much, believing it is full between her
career, her daughter, and her few close friends. She had
never truly loved her husband, so she isn't even quite
aware of what she's missing in that respect. Joel is full
of confusion when he is yanked out of his plane of
existence, and sucked into Julia's world. He is also full
of delight at the simplest of things, like the microwave,
and excited over each new discovery he finds. Emmi is
thrilled to have him in her life, convinced he was a gift
to her from God, and prays daily he will stay forever,
marry her mother, and be her daddy.
As Julia works against time to figure out what went wrong
so she can return Joel to his realm, all the while she's
wishing he could stay with them. Their love and passion
grow from the close relationship that forms as they try to
crack the equations, and both long for something that
should be forbidden to them. This story reminds readers
there is always hope. Though sometimes not easily
understood, there is a reason for everything and fate (and
a Higher Power) has a way of working, no matter what is
stacked against it. This reviewer enjoyed this story and
hopes to see more from this author in the future.
