'Every now and again a small book enters our lives, which carries a big punch. Jonathan Livingston's Seagull was such a book. Now, on an entirely different theme of angels and humans, Raising Angels is a sweet, heart opening book that carries a powerful message of Love. And in our current times, no other message could be more appropriate.'
