Proof of Angels by Mary Curran Hackett
Writing Style: "Old-style Lit."
Pacing: Relaxed, orderly, gentle, measured, forgiving, sentimental and entertaining are terms that come to mind when I think of the pacing.
Personal Highlights: The plain and flawless writing, and the characters beguiled me most. The mellow penning, or typing applied to creating the characters made for a comfortable reading experience. Really liked the brother-in-law and the guys at the fire station. Enjoyed Tom. James and Libby were a treat to the story. And there’re not enough words for how I felt about Chief. In this tale, dogs truly prove to be man’s best friend. But there was the cabbie, and the sister Lucia, and finally Chiara, and special mention to the flight attendant and one of my favorite quotes: “nothing to one person can mean the world to another.”
Potential Audience: From seasoned readers who appreciate old-style literature, to anyone who enjoys angelic stories will find this novel appealing.
