As the years go by, Joel and Rose find a friendship and she helps to bring him out of his sadness and back into enjoying life again.

Cindy Woodsmall is one of my favorite authors and I look forward to reading her books. The Angel of Forest Hill is a novella and a quick and easy read that I finished in one rainy Saturday afternoon. Because it is a novella the characters are not as developed as they would be in a full length novel. The book jumps forward in time but the author does a good job filling the reader in on the information that we missed out on. It is a beautiful story of love and hope and healing.
