I get more email about this series than anything I’ve ever written, period. The books are heart-warming and fun, and since most people read for entertainment, they serve their purpose very well.
The premise is simple: Heavenly Daze is a town on a small island off the coast of Maine. Two hundred years ago, at the time of the town’s settlement, its founder begged God to send angels to protect anyone who crossed the threshold of any home on Heavenly Daze. That prayer was answered, and now an angel resides in each home–though the townspeople don’t realize that the mild mannered “Smith” men are angels in disguise.
Lori and I like to think of this series as “Touched by an Angel” meets “Mayberry R.F.D.” The townspeople are quirky, but the angels are biblical, and though there are many hijinks, a serious spiritual vein runs through all of the books.
I hope you’ll join me this week as we take an in-depth look at the entire series, beginning with “The Island of Heavenly Daze.”
Oh! And Happy New Year to you!
