Advent calendar: day 12

teabooks

Behind door number 12 of my advent calendar, we find Angel Wings and Bullets by E.F. Mulder. If you need to believe in a little bit of magic this holiday season, this is the book for you!

A seemingly lost little girl leads Bart to the scene of a horrible accident. As he consoles Sawyer, who crashed his bike into a New York City bus, he finds himself comforted instead when Sawyer offers him a pendant to keep him safe as he heads off to boot camp and eventually war.

More than a decade later, the pair are reunited on Thanksgiving Day, one on one side of a soup kitchen serving table, one on the other. They nearly miss each other, but fate — or something else — seems to want to bring them together.

It isn’t only on that day, either, but throughout the holiday season, during which Bart discovers the significance of the pendant and both men learn to believe in angels and second chances.

Today’s quote from the book:

Surely there were better options—closer friends he could turn to when he needed to talk. “I feel like I would never run out of things to tell you,” he said as if answering my thoughts.

Today’s song to go with the story

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing by Frank Sinatra because you need musical angels to go with bookish angels.
