Since the beginning of human life on Earth, God has assigned guardian angels to a meaningful, universal task-to assist couples with conception, and then provide protection, guidance, and direction to the prevailing children.

Herbert is a good-hearted soul who was once considered the premier guardian angel. In recent years, Herbert has become somewhat forgetful and has been placed on inactive duty. Despite the objections of Eleanor, Director of Guardian Angel Relations, a miserable Herbert is overjoyed when God awards him a challenging new assignment-to help Samantha and Peter, an infertile married couple, conceive a child.

Across town, fifteen-year-old Gwen is twenty-three weeks pregnant and, until now, has refused to recognize her pregnancy. As the baby grows inside her, Gwen faces a monumental decision.

Herbert finds himself thrust in the middle of a conception mishap, and must find a way to get the baby to the right home or lose his wings forever. In Faces on the Ceiling, no one ever abandons the idea of a family, and we soon discover that when chance fails, choice prevails.
