Review: The Snow Angel By: Glenn Beck

The Snow AngelThe Snow Angel by Glenn Beck
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I think that it should be maybe 3 1/2 stars.
I great story about finding yourself in a situation that you don't remember entering. This is told by two main characters - Mitch and Rachael, a father and his daughter. I once was told that regret and loneliness is the cruel life and what better than to see the blossom of love, forgiveness, and compassion to cure it.
Mitch has lived his life, although he can't recall most of it because of Alzheimers, but daily he knows his regret, he knows he is waiting, he just isn't sure of what. He is able to push through moments to bring memories back to the surface, memories of his daughter, of his wife, both good and bad. And so his day that we are introduced to is Christmas Eve.
Rachael has been isolated and abused, first by her mother now by her husband. The excuses are wearing thin "falling" is working with her anymore. You can lie to others but can you really lie to yourself. She starts to reconnect with people that once loved her and through honest talks with her daughter, Lily, she takes a look at her life - how it was, how it is, and even the possibility of the future. Within those talks (her story starts on October 1st) a new perspective takes place, I new self love begins to develop.
This is a story of giving, recieving, grace, and love. I really enjoyed it, although as a former abuse victim I found some things too farfetched. But in the end the result was really good.
