The angel appeared in the White House without warning, no blowing of trumpets or rushing of wings. It stood by the President's bed, radiant, white. Its eyes were pools of love. Its light flooded the bedroom, surrounding and engulfing the President. The angel faded without saying a word, but its appearance forever changed the fate of the world . . . Millions of readers have come to cherish Burnham's glorious A Book of Angels and Angel Letters. Now, in her deeply moving novel, The President's Angel, Burnham weaves the divine grace of angelic apparition into a compelling tale of politics, passion, a spiritual awakening, and the world on the brink of annihilation. Matthew Adams is the popular, vital President of the United States. Wars rage. Drought and famine spawn violence and migrations. Weapons of mass destruction tempt mad generals. Fear and despair clamp a stranglehold on the spiritual life in America. In a world gone mad, the human race sullenly awaits its doom. And then an angel appears to the President. This is the story of what happens when the most powerful man on earth experiences a spiritual enlightenment. His colleagues think he has gone crazy. Some plan a coup. . . . Woven throughout the book are what Burnham calls "commentaries"-the world as seen from the point of view of angels, Christ, or God. A novel about the eternal dualities of salvation and despair, joy and terror, love and brutality. It unfolds in a great, uplifting rush of inspiration. Burnham has heard the laughter of angels and fathomed the dark mysteries of the human heart. In The President's Angel, she gives a work to treasure and to muse on in our minds and hearts.… (more)
