This collection of short stories describes the random acts of kindness that Thompson has experienced at the hands of people she describes as ‘angels’. The stories range from a stranger helping her at an airport to a mysterious cat who visits her every year on a Greek island holiday – who she also sees as an angel.

The second part of the book is a collection of poems. The author implies that these are inspired by her guardian angel, Rafael.

The stories Thompson details are commonplace tales of everyday kindness, and although they would no doubt be great to share with friends over a lovely meal, I’m not sure they merit a published work. I’m also a tad wary of the belief that the poems are messages from an angel who writes through her. Although well-meant and infused with the author’s charm and lively sense of humour, this is a book of personal family recollections for a very limited audience.
