Almost Heaven Blog Tour
Some people say Billy Allman has a heart of gold. Others say he's a bit odd. The truth is, they're all right. He's a hillbilly genius - a collector, a radio whiz - and he can make the mandolin sing. Though he dreams of making an impact on the world beyond the hills and hollers of Dogwood, West Virginia, things just always seem to go wrong.
But however insignificant Billy's life seems, it has not gone unnoticed. Malachi is an angel sent to observe and protect Billy. Though it's not his dream assignment, Malachi always follows orders. And as Billy's story unfolds, Malachi slowly begins to see the bigger picture - that each step Billy takes is a note added to a beautiful song that will forever change the lives of those who hear it.
It took me a little bit to get into Almost Heaven once I started reading it. The story seemed to drag in places. But once I got about halfway through, I started enjoying it more. The story took some twists and turns I wasn't expecting, especially when it involved Heather, Callie and Natalie but they were very interesting. I found myself wondering how different situations would work out and Chris Fabry did not disappoint. This was a good book.
