From number-one New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury comes the first in a brand-new series about second chances - a dramatic story about a washed-up baseball player, the love he left behind, and the miracles that might save them both.
When former national baseball star Tyler Ames suffers a career-ending injury, all he can think about is putting his life back together the way it was before. He has lost everyone he loves on his way to the big leagues. Then just when things seem to be turning around, Tyler hits rock bottom. Across the country, Tyler’s one true love Sami Dawson has moved on.
A series of small miracles leads Tyler to a maintenance job at a retirement home and a friendship with Virginia Hutcheson, an old woman with Alzheimer’s who strangely might have the answers he so desperately seeks.
A Team of Angels Walking take on the mission to restore hope for Tyler, Sami, and Virginia. Can such small and seemingly insignificant actions of the unseen bring healing and redemption? And can the words of a stranger rekindle lost love? Every journey begins with a step.
It is time for the mission to begin…

I have to confess the main reason that I chose this book was the baseball story as I love the game and watch it all the time, so when I was looking for a new story and this one came up I decided to read it. I was not at all bothered by the christian influence in fact it made the book appealing in a lot of ways. I was won over by the characters and the story and I am looking forward to the next book in the series very much.
If you are not bothered by the christian influence behind the story (and it is quite strong) then you would enjoy the story I certainly did.
"Walking with angels"
At the top of the list. Definitely
Tyler Aims. I can identify with all he had to go through
Tyler and Sammy scene. Love never fails.
Cry. It depicts what many of us feel in the world. So on the spot. We just don't have the courage to tell others what we are going through.
Wow. Stunning listening. Great story and God is at the centre of the whole story. Well done Karin. It is so REAL LIFE. Thanks for a great book.
Really good story. And I love how she shares the gospel message within the story. Excited to read the next one in the series.
I believe in angels and loved the assignments. God can turn anyone's life around for His glory. Everything could have been a real life story.
Enjoyed the book and would recommend. Encouraging and uplifting storyline. More books in the Angels Walking series as well.
"A Great Start To A New Series..."
The narrators did a great job distinguishing between the characters and capturing their personalities.
I love Karen Kingsbury books :-) Angels Walking reminds me of many of her other novels because the characters endure life changing events that ultimately lead them to God.
Tyler's relationship with Virgina was very touching... the growth of the two characters as a result of their friendship blossomed as the pages turned.
Angels Walking is full of numerous heartwarming moments...
I can't wait to read the next book in the series when it is published!
"Another great story from Karen Kingsbury"
The story, the characters, the surprises, loved it all.
The female reader's "male voice" was a little weird, but other than that well done by both readers.
I can't wait to hear the next book in the series.
totally enjoyed every minute of this book. Could hardly wait to get in my car to listen to what was happening next. Had to finish the rest of it todayin my kitchen as I was cooking. Now I want to go get book number 2. Great story. Makes me wonder are there really Angels out there walking on Earth with myself? I do believe.
"Great listen !!"
Refreshing ! Anyone who still believes God is in control needs to listen to this ! It's a reminder of how awesome he is and that Grace is a real thing !
"I loved the book"
I loved the book. I have had an experience one time on my life that I was sure it was the ministry of an angel. It happened at a time in my life when my husband and I needed God's intervention very much. I thank God for that experience.
if ever I needed a good book with direction and hope, this is it. I loved everything about it
"A story that stays with you"
Fantastic story which inspired and challenged me. Faultless narrators. Couldn't wait for my next opportunity to continue with the story. Looking forward very much to next in series.
