My Previous Books:
When her son is diagnosed with a rare form of lung cancer, Elaine is determined to cherish the treasured remaining time they have together. But those years are filled with anxiety and trepidation as she watches his life slowly ebb away. During the last three months she spends with him in the Mayo Clinic, she discovers what she knew all along-that life is precious and can't be redeemed by assumptions, empty words, or promises, and if angels really do exist, they went unnoticed in room 420. Borrowed Angel will open your heart to the pain, suffering, and ultimately the healing of a mother who lost the one thing in life that she loved most. It is a story that will show that angels really do exist, that they can mend a broken heart, and despite what others may believe, that they are servants of a higher power.
