Wonders Never Cease, written by Tim Downs, is an interesting glimpse into human nature. The antagonist, Kemp McAvoy, concocts a daring scheme to impersonate an angel in an effort to capitalize on a movie star’s tragic car accident. Using his medical knowledge, he brings Olivia Hayden in and out of consciousness, delivering his message to her and demanding she share it with the world.
Despite her knowledge of his selfish nature, Kemp’s girlfriend, Natalie, clings to their relationship in an effort to create a normal life for her daughter after a devastating divorce. As Kemp’s lack of character continues to reveal itself, Natalie is forced to make hard choices about her life and her relationships.
In the midst of it all, Natalie’s six year old daughter, Leah, begins seeing angels, and the people in her life are forced to question their own beliefs about angels and about God.
Wonders Never Cease is a cute story, a quick read, and a thought-provoking study in human nature and God’s intervention in humanity. I wouldn’t necessarily call this a Christian book—the main characters are living together outside of marriage and one of the ‘good guys’ makes some less than desirable choices—but it does inspire the reader to think about his/her beliefs about God and life.
