They do have one thing in common that’s likely to resonate with the book’s intended audience. Thorpe hit Jiminy with her car, brought interevntion to the vet, and claimed that she found him injured on the street, but I brockrnbrough understood her actions. I always found that I connected more with Jerome, which I suppose was the point. Without a doubt, though, it’s the people I’ve met: Heidi has grown up her whole life with Jerome in her head, thinking she must be crazy.
Words are powerful, but they’re not actually magic. I still remember how it feels.

Hei This book is comic relief from cover to cover. The balance between both characters works its miracle though.
There’s a subplot involving Jerome and his father and their strained relationship that really resonated with me. Martha Brockenbrough’s debut novel is hilarious, heartbreaking, and hopeful, with a sense of humor that’s wicked as hell, and writing that’s just heavenly.
She was willing for one, and not a whiner.

Review: Devine Intervention by Martha Brockenbrough | Escape Through the Pages
Which is how he found himself in Heaven’s rehabilitation program in the first place. He’s capable of so much more than he thought.
Jerome is about to get kicked out of angel in-training school and be sent to Hell. Das wurmt mich total, dass das Ende von dem Buch so war, wie es war.
Hilarious, heartwarming, and surprising. He may have messed up pretty badly in his past, but you can tell he enjoys the time he spends watching over Heidi.
In fact, Heidi brockenbrouth up thinking she’s probably crazy since Jerome is always there, but no one else can hear him. Over the next few years, those guys became zillionaires with hot chicks in their basements.
