By: Suza Scalora with Francesca Lia Block
My summary: Evidence of Angels is a remarkably stunning collection of photographs accompanied by a brief story about the author's journey with angels. After the loss of a loved one the author plunges in to a deep depression. Until one day she hears a voice that compels her to open her eyes and pick up her camera. The voice said:
"Stand Up. Everything in your life has meaning. Your journey is to find it."
From that moment on she begins to see and experience angels. This lovely collection represents her journey and the types of angels she has encountered and witnessed along the way.
My say: Beautiful. Gorgeous. Buy it. Buy it for that relative you can not decide what to get for Christmas. But I warn you the images are so ethereal and vibrant you may decide to make it a permanent fixture on your coffee table.
My rating: 5 stars; I really liked the story and the letters (names and details from the actual testimonials were changed for confidentiality reasons). But what I really loved was the pictures/representations of the angels Suza has met.
My favorite part: One image looks like a typical day in a New York City park. A couple is walking by, the sun is shining, and the fountains are on. A little boy (about 2-3 years old) is looking up. When you look closer it appears the passerby has overlooked what has caught the child's attention. What could easily be seen as a slant of light is in fact an angel. The caption reads:
"We are with you."
Noteworthy: When previously asked what she hopes readers will take away from this book Suza answered: "The messages I would like Evidence of Angels to impart to readers is: you are never alone and guidance is available if you ask. It may come in ways you don't expect, but if you keep your heart and mind open you will see signs everywhere. And nothing ever truly dies: all energy is merely transformed. So, when a loved one passes on they are still with you, although their form no longer exists. Our soul is eternal."
