The Book in Review – Johnny Angel by Danielle Steel

Seventeen year old, Johnny Peterson could light up anybody’s day with a charming nature and beautiful smile, fill his mom with bliss and pride, make his girl, Becky, melt with a look, and move his siblings easily.

Johnny Angel is about the battle for Johnny’s family and his darling girlfriend, Becky, to pick back the bits of their messed-up lives. Notwithstanding the misfortune that hurt Johnny’s now broken family much more, a supernatural miracle happened that saved them.

The family crisis

Johnny’s family experienced difficulties before Johnny’s demise. Five years prior when Johnny’s sibling, Bobby, was just five, he and his dad, Jim, drove off a scaffold. The two of them endure, anyway barely. An outsider saved Bobby, and Jim figured out how to get out in the nick of time. Bobby was in a coma for about fourteen days, and since the time then Bobby hasn’t expressed a word. Jeff is so overwhelmed by blame that he can’t figure out how to remain in his home (calm, that is). Thus, consistently, while Bobby is secured in his quiet world, Jim drinks himself to snooze in front of the TV.

The mother-son love dynamic

Johnny’s mom, Alice, is the most disturbed about the misfortune. Johnny meant the world to her. He was her first boy and his birth to the world was the best moment of her life. In the agony and sorrow of Johnny’s passing, she shed pounds, dozes barely, and is debilitated. One night she turns out to be wiped out to the point that she starts puking blood. She is raced to the emergency clinic and goes through serious medicines for a draining ulcer and ultimately Alice improves, however she likely would have died if not for a miracle, a marvel that was going to patch many broken hearts.

Danielle Steel Johnny Angel presents the Peterson family has had quite a damage to their end, that transformed their lives. But they are all invested and got a wake-up call with the miracle that comes walking in their lives. This story should be read with a box of tissues as it is so beautiful and engaging that it connects you through every curve of the story. The plot is inspiring and the value of relationships tickles the soul creatively. This book by Danielle Steel should be on your list!
