A gift of angels
Readers loved Jerry Bledsoe's The Angel Doll, the 1950s story of 10-year-old Whitey Black, his love for his little sister Sandy, a victim of polio, and his quest to fulfill her Christmas wish for an angel doll. Critics proclaimed it "a gem of a story", and "a modern Christmas classic".
A Gift of Angels takes up the story nearly half a century later.
It not only tells how The Angel Doll came about, but how it set the narrator, now the possessor of the doll, on his own quest to find his long-missing friend Whitey so that he can solve a Christmas mystery and return the doll to its rightful place.
An endearing story of friendship, love and giving, A Gift of Angels is sure to find a place in readers' hearts, even if they haven't read The Angel Doll.
