If you’re a fan of the Touched by an Angel TV show, you’ll definitely love this heartwarming Christian novel!
After the death of his parents, George sought comfort through drugs and alcohol. He soon became addicted to both, and in the process, abandoned his sister, Kara Billington (the only family member he had left). Kara tried to help her brother overcome his addictions, but George was so stubborn that she gave up and continued with her own life.
Later, George was given a second chance at life when God sent an angel, Ronald, to help him recover from his drug and alcohol addictions. Ronald had to succeed on his mission to earn his wings.
As Ronald took to the streets of Rockford, Illinois in his search for George, he soon discovered him at a liquor store. Upon meeting George, Ronald learned that his mission wouldn’t be an easy one. George was not only drunk when Ronald found him, but he expressed the fact that he didn’t believe in angels, and George’s stubborn, ill tempered and independent personality came out full force.
When Ronald finally persuaded George to talk with him, George told Ronald about his sister and confessed that he hadn’t seen her in two years. Ronald then decided to go search for George’s sister with the hope that he could reunite the two, and he thought that just maybe Kara would help him with his mission.
Upon finding Kara, Ronald convinced her to help him. Along with Kara’s help, he also received assistance from Kara’s good friend and the preacher at the church she attends, Reverend Timothy Gill.
Will the three triumph in getting George the help he needs to recover, or will George’s stubbornness cause the trio to call it quits?
Help From Above is a Christian novel that adults, teenagers and Touched by an Angel TV show fans will truly enjoy! In fact, this christian fiction book is perfect for teenagers, because it will show them the effects of drugs and alcohol, and maybe by knowing more about the disease, they’ll be more willing to “just say no” to drugs and alcohol. Furthermore, Help From Above would be a great book for middle school and high school teachers to assign their class to read. Then after the class has read this Christian fiction book, they can discuss how the drugs and alcohol affected George.

From Marianna Keough, a reader in PA..
"I won't go into details about the book as this is one that you will just HAVE to read! It's wonderfully written and very touching. Misti has great talent and it shows in this book. I highly recommend it to everyone. Thank you Misti for the time and effort you put into writing this book!"
From Suzie Housley, MyShelf
"Misti Jackson's HELP FROM ABOVE is similar to the well-loved television drama "Touched By An Angel." It contains all the warm heart-felt elements, which will keep readers spellbound until the last page is savored and enjoyed.
After the tragic death of his parents George Billington escapes his grief through drugs and alcohol. Knowing his addiction will eventually lead to his destruction, an angel suddenly appears hoping to be in time to save his soul.
Ronald is the angel assigned to help George beat his harmful addictions. With his holy guidance, he hopes he is not too late to assist him in conquering his addictions and moving forward with his life.
Upon meeting George, he quickly realizes his case is far more serious than he alone can handle. He makes the decision to enlist the help of George's sister, Kara Billington and a trusted priest, Father Timothy Gill. Together will the three be able to unite and save George from his wicked wayward ways? Or will it mean the ultimate downfall of them also?
HELP FROM ABOVE is powerfully written. This gripping emotional story presents a realistic glimpse into the sufferings of drug and alcohol abuse. Readers will walk away feeling as though they witnessed a miracle as the ending dramatically closes".
From Amanda Faye Killgore, Ivy Quill Books
"In tradition of Clarence from It's a Wonderful Life, Ms. Jackson gives us the story of Ronald, an angel who has yet to earn his wings. His first assignment is to save George from the path of self-destruction that was similar to the one that caused his own death.
When he first meets George, a man addicted to pills and booze, George tells him that he has no family other then an estranged sister, Kara, and rejects the angel Undaunted. Ronald seeks out Kara and persuades her to help him save her brother. They are joined in the project by Father Gill. The trio arrives just in time to get George to the hospital, saving him from ODing. During this, Kara meets an attractive doctor who will change her life.
Over the course of several weeks, George seesaws between recovery and backsliding. Only after an encounter with the Almighty does he truly see the scope of his danger.
Told in a simplistic style that is easy for all ages to comprehend, this short novel offers the message of hope for everyone, affirming that God is looking out for even the most unrepentant sinner."
