by Michelle V. Whalley The human experience of angels is always a very personal one. Many people believe they exist, religions acknowledge their presence, and many books have been written about them. In Angel Whispers, Michelle Whalley shares her personal experience with angels through poetry and pictures. The author invites us to enjoy her book for just what it is-a personal experience.
