With her minister/rancher/Army reservist husband called to active service and sent to Afghanistan for six months, Raine Montgomery must keep his ministry at Raising Angels Church, the family home called Noah’s Ranch, and her veterinary practice going while raising their three adopted children—fifteen-year-old Gabi, nine-year-old Rafe, and five-year-old Ariel.
Michael Reeves is a nightmare-suffering Army veteran who, along with his best friend Jake Montgomery, arrive at Noah’s Ranch just when Raine is about to give up. Having given up on God, and nearing the end of his mental rope, Michael is not sure what to think when Ariel says she and the angels love him and are praying for him to find his way home again.
Ariel Montgomery is not only a true believer, but talks regularly with her angels, and passes along messages. She knows her purpose in life is to love everything and everyone, though she sees Mr. Michael as a challenge, but one she willingly takes on, despite his skepticism.
