I am not usually very hard to please with novels but this one completely missed the mark for me I found the main protagonist Mary Catherine to be annoying unlikable and all together too perfect I also got very tired of the fact that the author kept pushing a 'ketosis' diet as the cure all for every health problem I don't read novels to have diet fads pushed on me I go to my doctor for that 2 stars was a generous rating This novel is the third in the Angels Walking series and to really enjoy it fully one should read the previous twoAs with the other novels Kingsbury highlights the role of angels in the lives of the novel's characters This story centers on Mary Catherine She is in need of a heart transplant and it looks like the chances of that happening are slim Convinced the relationship between her and Marcus should not continue she spurns his love for her and goes to Africa The angels take on the task of preserving her life and seeing to it that her future is in line with the future God has plannedKingsbury has an interesting way of writing a novel Even though there were suspenseful times in the story the action moves along at a consistent pace and the prose is almost soothing rather than anxiety producing The characters' personalities are well developed as there is uite a bit of contemplation by them recordedThere were a couple of things I found a bit odd in the novel One was the lack of description I had a hard time visualizing people and places We are in the presence of a newborn at one place in the novel and I kept waiting to find out what it looked like I read much of what people thought about the baby and its importance to them but I was left never knowing whether the baby had hair was bald the color of its skins etc I would have liked a little physical descriptions of the scenes and people perhaps at the expense of what characters were thinking about the scenes and the peopleThe other concept I thought odd was the dislike of carbohydrates There was a repeated emphasis on avoiding carbohydrates In fact Kingsbury writes “Carbohydrates caused inflammation illness and disease” I did a little investigation on my own and found that research results are really mixed While refined carbohydrates cause inflammation some studies found that fats and protein especially casein do too One study found that high fiber intake actually lowered inflammation markers With the conclusions so mixed I wondered why the carbohydrate issue was mentioned so oftenI recommend this novel to readers who like a satisfying Christian romance that highlights the possible involvement of angels in our lives If you like a high protein low carb diet your views will be reinforced tooI received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review Brush of Wings is the third and final book in Karen Kingsbury's Angels Walking series and all I can say is WowThis series touched my life in ways than one and the third book wrapped it up in a heartfelt moment where a wonderful fulfilling sigh escaped my lipsThe story of Mary Catherine and Marcus along with Tyler and Sami will leave you feeling whole again At least that's what it did for meKaren you've done it again Thank you This was the final book in the Angels Walking seriesAs expected from Karen Kingsbury this was a great conclusion to the series however I did feel it drag a bit in the middle I got very frustrated with Mary Catherine in this book In book 1 and 2 I felt she was a strong character but in this book I felt she was acting selfish and almost like a spoiled child who makes decisions based on their willWhat was great for me in this book though was the message I got from it That some times we act as spoiled children acting in our will instead of God's will trying to convince ourselves that it is God's will Even though we are stubborn and walk a bit of God's path for our lives He still works everything to our will protecting us and guiding us gently back to His path Sometimes we make decisions because we limit what God can do in our lives like Mary Catherine did with her illnessview spoilerWith the ending I would have liked to see a bit from Sami's point of view when she got married instead of just Mary Catherine hide spoiler Not the best book in the series but still amazing Brush of Wings by Karen Kingsbury is the third book in the Angels Walking series It can be read as a stand alone although you may not understand a few things throughout the book I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and was sad to see it end As with most of Karen's books I fell in love with the characters and found myself laughing and crying right along with themIn this book Mary Catherine faces a serious health crisis She refuses to tell anyone just how serious it is and instead focuses on her desire to go to Africa She's determined that IF she is to die she will do it on her own terms loving the orphans and spreading the message of God What can be noble than that? She goes against doctors orders and leaves family and friends in the dark promising herself if she gets really really sick she will tell Sami her roommateI don't believe Mary Catherine was cold hearted or malicious by not telling them She didn't want to be a burden on those she loved She also didn't want Marcus to waste his time and heart on her when she wasn't sure she was going to live She loved them Marcus and her friends and didn't want to burden them with worries of her health or to have them talk her out of this trip to Africa She longed to help at the orphanage and felt like God was calling her to do that I admired Mary Catherine's spirit She loved life but most of all she loved God She never once stopped praying to God for guidance throughout her entire story Whether she was having a good day or a really bad one she never forgot her LordI felt bad for Marcus Here he is madly in love with Mary Catherine and he doesn't understand why she's pushing him away He knows their feelings are real yet she won't fully commit to him Even when he says he loves her and will wait for her even as she goes to Africa she says she just wants to be friends It takes a strong man of faith to love Mary Catherine and Marcus Dillinger is just that man Although he's still new to his faith he loves God with all his heart and he relies on God to guide his footsteps I have to admit Marcus made my heart swoon Who wouldn't want a man who loves God desperately first and pursues you with that same determination? He wasn't overly pushy with her but he was definitely forthright I also loved how he asked God for a sign and God answered I can't tell you how many times I've begged God for a burning bush or something to tell me what I should doFriends I absolutely loved this book It's definitely a love story but not just one between man and woman No it's a love story between God and his people You feel that throughout this book It's like God told Karen write a love story to my people sigh I can go on and on but I'd rather you get a copy and read it for yourself The book isn't available to March 29th but you can pre order it for the next few weeks If you pre order you can receive a gift from Karen All the details are on Karen's webpage and Facebook page You can pre order as many copies as you like You may be thinking what will I do with than one copy of the same book? Well be an angel to somebody;give a copy to your neighbor a single mom or leave one at the doctor's office They will be blessed and you will too I loved this conclusion to the Angels Walking series The stories were heart wrenching full of inspiration tough choices and love I was happy with the ending but sad to say goodbye to these characters By this last book in the series I was very irritated with MC for acting so irresponsibly and recklessly with her health and her downright lying mostly by omission I suppose to her parents her friends and Marcus I was also getting tired of it sounding like we were being evangelized to eat a ketogenic organic diet and not only is that great for your health but you will be a better Christian because it is food the way God made it and all the rest of us should probably be ashamed of ourselves for eating regular food with sugar I do not buy that anyone would in good conscience keep that kind of serious health issue from their parents Imagine how you would feel if your child did that Families are not supposed to work like that I did like the happily ever after so much that I almost gave 3 stars but then I decided not to let the ending sway me from the way I saw most of the rest of the book She never tried to discern what God's will would be in the situation she just did what she wanted to do I did like the way the angels were portrayed and the ways they intervened That was a clever and imaginative way to interpret how angels might work in our livesalthough there was that old tv series Touched by an Angel so 45⭐️A beautiful conclusion Every moment pulled me into each situation and made my heart race for Mary Cathrine and marcus or skip for Sammy and tyler I couldnt have asked for a better finale Throw in sickness to any book and im already hookedThis book is very aww worthy This was the perfect ending to the series I loved it From the beginning the reader knew that there was something special coming but I didn’t figure it out until near the end of this third book It was so beautiful I am grateful for the angels that God has said surround us here on earth I love to think that beings as wonderful as the ones in these books are looking out for me
