Halos by Kristen Heitzmann

20130615-093350.jpgHalos is the touching story of a lonely young woman who believes in miracles and the good in everyone and everything. Her circumstances cause her to begin to doubt the good, but she remains positive and touches those around her with kindness even when they are rude to her.

Halos is set in a small northern town in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Alessi’s car and possessions are stolen at the beginning of the story, and she must depend on the kindness of strangers for food and shelter while searching for her car. The author offers much insight into the thoughts of the main characters as they examine their hearts for selfishness, idolatry, anger, unforgiveness, and doubt, but the author also provides plenty of humor through the supporting characters and their small town antics. The missing car and its thief provide suspense that will keep you reading late into the night. There is also enough sexual tension to keep you interested in the relationship and to keep the characters real, but they also demonstrate self-control.

This book was an enjoyable read.
