In a format which is accessible, witty and thought provoking, Julia Wilmot is striving to introduce and explore spiritual matters in a fictional setting. Chick lit it maybe but the spiritual dimension that Julia offers to this genre gives it a whole new and thought provoking twist.
SEE OUR REVIEW
This debut novel is based on the concept, that is held by many interested in spiritual development, that we embark on our lives
in order to follow a path that we have devised for ourselves while we are preparing to be reborn. A path that will help us to experience and learn from the challenges of life to ultimately help us develop spiritually. In Julia's take on this theme we are also introduced to the concept of guardian angels and in fact a whole host of angels who are helping us on our way or monitoring our progress.
In this story, however, we meet Emma Butler who it seems is nearing the end of her current life and it is found that she has failed to have completed the major tasks that she set herself before being reborn. For the angels this is a serious issue and the book follows the humorous trials and tribulations that ensue from a senior Arch Angel taking over her guardianship and getting a little too involved in the process to ensure that everything is achieved before her "recall date." Emma suddenly finds her life is taking a different turn as she loses her job, survives a house blaze and finds her mind very confused about Jack, who it has been decided will be her love interest in the small amount of time she has left. God watches over the whole scenario as a humorous and all knowing being, much as you'd expect. Is free will being compromised? Has a cosmic mistake been made and how will it all end?
