Angels on High, and Angels on High – The Challenge, were the first two novels produced by Christian fiction author, Walter G. Deecki Sr. I found both to be fascinating reads, with plots that gripped my attention within the first few paragraphs.
In the first novel, Angels on High, you’ll meet Samuel Pulaski, a charismatic man, who is a superb storyteller, sharing his own life’s adventures with anyone who is interested and listening. Samuel’s life has been riddled with triumph and heartache, and he’s grown wise from both. He incorporates that wisdom into his stories, hoping to encourage others, and help them to make better decisions when they face struggles and crisis of their own.
When Samuel’s life seems to have culminated to the hardest hit of all, knocking him to his knees in grief and prayer, rather than giving up, and deciding nothing more could be done, other than shuffling through what years he had left, he decides that isn’t enough. He wasn’t created for such, and so he prays for strength and guidance to complete what new tasks God might have for him. This leads him to a brand new environment, with a brand new friends, far away from the life, and people, he’d known and loved, for many years.
A new town, with new faces and unique needs, is where Samuel is drawn to, and lands. As he settles in, he meets Jimmy, a young lad of 13, thoughtful, caring and curious. Jimmy is very impressionable, and finds Samuel to be fascinating in everything from stories to fishing.
Perhaps some friendships are formed in Heaven before they manifest on earth. It seems this might be the case with Samuel and Jimmy. Samuel’s wit, wisdom, and sincere fondness of the boy, quickly binds them as best friends, who share a similar faith and beliefs. At the same time, life erupts into a brand new set of seriously challenging adventures for both of them, and their friends and families in their community.
In the sequel, Angels on High – The Challenge, supernatural characters and events are woven seamlessly from the first novel into the second. Situations arise causing faith to be tested, even for Samuel, who often seems to maintain an unshakeable faith in his God. However, Samuel setting the bar high, regarding faith in God, and maintaining an incredibly strong standard, has been noticed by others, and his footsteps have laid out an unwavering path for them to follow when crisis hits.
Join Samuel and Jimmy’s community as they bind together to defeat natural and supernatural enemies, intent on destroying their town and their faith. With love and lives hanging in the balance of a haunting and grim future, an old man’s life and faith offers the clues and keys to defeat the enemy.
