The Angelic Letters Series, Book One

Pewter Angels

The summer of 1956 starts out like any other summer for 15-year-old Henry Pederson: hot, long and boring. That all changes when Jenny Sarsky along with her guardian angel and her family move into the house three doors down. From the moment their eyes meet, an earthly attraction unites their hearts while the spiritual energy travelling the length of the gaze they share joins their souls—spinning a web of love that transcends time and Heaven itself.

Mr. Engelmann, an endearing and wise mentor living out the word of God, comes into Henry’s life, providing him with powerful insights and valuable life lessons that carry strength, wisdom and hope, making this story both a heart-wrenching romance and an uplifting journey of spiritual discovery.

Characters so real that their sadness, tears and joys fly off the pages and become ever entrenched in the mind and heart of the reader.

Pewter Angels, the first book of “The Angelic Letters” series, starts Henry and Jenny and their families on an inspiring yet tumultuous journey through life’s struggles and victories, and the miracle of deep, enduring love. Their 50-year spiritual odyssey becomes an experience long remembered; a hard-to-put-down story spanning five novels with an ending that surprises and satisfies beyond the reader’s most wishful imaginings, an ending only angels can bring about.

Buying Options

“He hath given his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways… In their hands they shall bear thee up: lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” Psalm 91:11-12

…Suddenly, she turned to Henry as if to speak, catching him off guard. He didn’t have time to pretend he wasn’t staring at her. He’d been caught. Their eyes met now for a second time and although he felt his face warming again with a blush, this time he couldn’t turn away. Her gaze locked with his and his with hers. They rose from their knees simultaneously, as if lifted, and were at once standing, facing each other.

Nothing existed except this moment and this place.

A charged, earthly attraction united their hearts while a spiritual energy traveled the length of the gaze they shared, drawing their souls from their bodies and joining them at the halfway point. The aura around them brightened, enclosing both in the surrounding glow of their celestial connection.

Time stood still…

Pewter Angels will grab your heart, squeeze it and hold it to the very last page.
