Monday Book Review - The Miracles of Ordinary Men

Welcome to Monday and this week's book recommendation.



Sam, a high school English teacher, is an ordinary guy until the day he wakes up with wings growing out of his back. No one besides himself, his cat, his childhood priest and a student are able to see them.
Delilah is torn between her cold and distant mother dying of cancer and her younger brother, who lives on the streets of Vancouver and refuses to come home. When her new boss approaches her for a date, she finds him both dangerous and alluring, and impossible to turn down.

This is a book you'll be thinking about for days and weeks afterwards. In fact, it's a good idea to lend it to friends and family as well, because you're going to want to discuss it with them. It's something to reread and argue about, a story that will make you question the purpose of God, the devil and miracles. 

This is a book that comes along only once in a while. A beautiful story that sticks with you and makes you question what you know and what you believe. This is a definite must read.
