This book contains seventeen luminous tales, all geographically and historically correct, some untold until today. Did you know about: The white-maned Arabian stallion who ran on water? The angel who followed Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden? The invisible shield around Gypsy Moth skipper Francis Chichester? The seagoing fire fighter in the flowing white robes? The divine visions of King Lalibela of Ethiopia? The angel who built Hertford Cathedral? The 'unknown fourth' who walked with Ernest Shackleton and his two crew members across the mountains of South Georgia island? The cathedral within a mosque in Cordoba, Spain and the secret of its weeping angel? The wife with their child who sped to see her soldier husband in wartime U.S.A., and the Mack truck and angel that helped her? The "Pilot of the Pinta," invisible second mate on Captain Joshua Slocum's voyage around the world? Mount Everest's guardian angel? The angel that became a second parachute? The voices in the cockpit of Charles A. Lindbergh? and, The Spirit of Saint Louis?...and more.
These are a few of the stories in this remarkable retelling of some of the world's great adventures - adventures which the men and women survived in spite of facing certain tragedy and even death. The author hopes that you, too, will realise, as did the heroes of these stories, that you are never alone, and that this realisation will help you cope more successfully with your daily life - and perhaps even accomplish the seemingly impossible.
