Looking Down From Heaven

Rufus sat in his apartment and thought about his life.  He remembered some good things about his childhood.  His mom used to take him to Sunday school most Sundays where he learned a lot about God.


Emily could see her mother and father getting into their Lincoln Continental. She could also see her sister, Courtney, who was seven years old already sitting in the back seat of the car. She wanted to touch them or say something to let them know she was there, but she couldn't because she was not alive she was dead!

Rufus, a child molester, murdered Emily and Sarah. God sent them back to Earth temporarily as guardian angels. Their mission was to protect the ones they love and to ensure Rufus was brought to justice.
While I did not totally agree with some of the theology in Looking Down From Heaven, I did find it an enthralling story. Looking Down From Heaven is a short tale of only 105 pages. I read this book in one sitting. I was more than a little teary-eyed at times and smiling at others. Sarah and Emily had distinct voices. When they threw rocks at Rufus, I was cheering them on. Okay, so that might not be what we normally think of as angelic behavior, they were protecting others. Marion W. McKenney is an extremely talented author. Her style is almost conversational. She writes in a simple, easy-to-understand manner. I am not sure what group she was focusing on when writing this book. I would suggest upper elementary and middle school students would enjoy this book. Nevertheless, do not count out adults, they will find this a rewarding read also.
