Review 2020 red

The Celestial Assignment is a novella of just 28 pages by the queen of short stories author Theresa Braun. We first meet bad boy Will, who has become a guardian angel as he is given an assignment to watch over newly born Celeste.

Will doesn’t quite understand why he has been given the role seen as he isn’t religious, nor ever stepped foot in a church but the powers that be have chosen him and he has no way of getting out of it.

Will watches and protects Celeste as she grows older and into a teenage girl having her first boy crush. He doesn’t particularly like the guy that she has chosen but little did he know that this guy would be in and out of her life for many years to come.

It takes him a long time but Will starts to understand why he has been given this assignment as he can see himself in the boy and his behaviour towards women.

The story took me just thirty minutes to read and was really enjoyable. I can’t say that I am one of those people that finds books philosophical so for me, this was just an interesting, touching story but I can see some readers having a more in-depth though analysis about The Celestial Assignment.

If you are looking for a quick read that is different, intriguing and just might make you analyse your life then this is the book for you.
