Proof of Angels by Mary Curran Hackett

Goodreads | Amazon
From the critically acclaimed author of Proof of Heaven comes an unforgettable novel about hope, renewal, and the gift of angels among us – friends, family, lovers… and even mystical others – sure to touch your heart.

Sean Magee is a firefighter – a hero who risks his own life to save others, running into dangerous situations few have the courage to dare. While fighting a horrific blaze, Sean becomes trapped by flames and is nearly overcome by smoke. Just when it seems that all is lost, he’s led to a window – by what he swears is divine intervention. And then he jumps…

…into a new life. For years, Sean has shut down his feelings, existing in a state of emotional numbness. Coming through that fire, he knows that he can no longer be that man whose his heart is closed to the world. But before he can face his future, he must confront his past and everyone in it: the family, the friends, the woman – and the love – he carelessly left behind.

Upon reading the back-of-the-book blurb for Mary Curran Hackett’s Proof of Angels, I was intrigued to see how Sean Magee’s transformation would manifest after his life-changing accident. Though a bit predictable, his story was a satisfying and encouraging one to read. I really enjoyed the various characters and their interactions regarding the idea of angels, as they dealt with second chances, healing and redemption in the face of tragedy and addictions. Admittedly, reading Proof of Heaven first would help to better understand Sean’s past, but Proof of Angels is still an inviting and delightful read on its own. I think readers looking for a quick and easy contemporary read will be pleased to pick up this second novel from Hackett.
