Two young Southern girls, one the daughter of a plantation owner and one the daughter of a slave, barely survive the onset of the Civil War and the loss of both their families. When these tragic circumstances bring them together, they join forces to discover if they can make a life for themselves. As their preconceptions give way to experience, they gradually learn to value their contrasting and complementing strengths and skills as they face the formidable task of keeping body and soul together in the aftermath of this devastating war.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent historical fiction. 5. November 2004
    Von Rebecca Herman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    Mayme Jukes and Katie Clairborne both grew up on plantations near the same town in Shenandoah County, North Carolina, but their lives were vastly different. Mayme was born into slavery, while Katie enjoyed a privileged life as the daughter of a wealthy plantation owner. But in the final days of the Civil War, the two teenagers are thrown together when both of their families are murdered by marauding outlaw soldiers. Fleeing from the massacre of her family, Mayme stumbles across Katie's plantation, where she is the only one left alive. Mayme stays to help Katie, and eventually the girls become close friends in spite of their differences. But can these two teenage girls survive on their own, and hide the truth that they are all alone on the plantation?

    I highly recommend this heartwarming historical novel about two girls from very different backgrounds who, after suffering a common tragedy, come together to help each other out, eventually becoming the best of friends. Although labeled as an adult book, I think this novel would have the most appeal to teenagers, because of the young characters. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series and finding out what happens to Mayme and Katie next.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen A True Story of Friendship 28. März 2004
    Von Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    I loved this book. It proves to everyone who reads it that even the most different of people can come together to overcome tragedy such as death. This book is for anyone looking for inspiration,a reason to care, or just looking for a good read on a Sunday morning.Michael Phillips is an amazing premier Christian novelist who writes from the heart, and it's hard to find authors these days that do that. This story of friendship is amazing and will inspire anyone to befriend someone who needs a hand, or just to simply look at life a little differently. I couldn't put this book down and you wont want to either!

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Friendship and Love Know No Boundaries 24. April 2003
    Von shoutgrace - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    Angels Watching Over Me, is a story of two young friends Katie, a white girl and Mayme, a colored slave girl. Set in Shenandoah, sometime after the Civil War the two teens living just miles of each other meet after a tragic event. When the Civil War comes to an end Gangs of outlaw Confederate deserters sweep across the land in a murderous path through the South leaving both the girls orphaned. I found this to be a very heartwarming, God-touching story of love and friendship amidst all the pain and sorrow. These two girls from two different worlds miraclously survive their ordeal in a world turned upside down.

    Together both of the girls do whatever they can to stay safe as they hide out in the plantation once owned by Katie's family. In this story of survival, both of them grow in a new truth and faith in God. It is God who speaks to Mayme and she talks to him and listen to what He tells her to do. The two vow to keep things that have happened secret and manage things with God's help. When the girls come of age, they live together with Katie taking over the plantation. Through all the strengths and skills they reconstruct their lives by the mercy and grace of God. It was an amazing story of triumphant over bad circumstances. It encouraged me that no matter if you left alone in a dark world you can make it with the help of an Almighty and loving God. So you can grow and make a life for yourself. No matter the odds, you can stand against anything when you got God on your side.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Angels Come In Many Forms 27. Juni 2004
    Von The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    ANGELS WATCHING OVER ME is the first book in the Shenandoah Sisters series written by the acclaimed Christian author Michael Phillips. This book introduces us to Mary Ann Jukes (Mayme) and Kathleen Clairborne (Katie); two young girls close in age but with very different lives. Mayme is a young slave girl living on a plantation in North Carolina. Through her experiences readers are exposed to the everyday life of a young slave and her family. Katie lives on another large plantation in the area and lives a comfortable life as the youngest and only daughter of slave owners.
    The book opens during the turbulent times preceding the civil war. As the story continues, Katie's life is shaken up when her father and three older brothers go off to fight with the Confederate Army. Things seem to be going from bad to worse, but as the war comes to a close things start looking up for the Clairborne family. That is until a violent and tragic series of events take place and life on both plantations is forever changed. As a result of these events, the paths of these two very different young girls cross and the story of their relationship unfolds. Katie is a dreamer, but the realities of life are forcing her to grow up fast. Mayme has always had a hard life and as a result she seems to be afraid to dream at all. Although the two girls have seemingly opposite worldviews, they are the perfect compliment for one another as they face the difficult challenges that lie ahead. Along the way the two girls begin to develop a personal relationship with God.
    Some readers will be turned off by Mayme's acceptance of her role as slave. In spite of her youth, she has had enough experiences to break her spirit to the point where she is afraid to hope for more. Katie's hopefulness can in part be attributed to the fact that she is naïve and comes from a privileged background. Through the story readers are taken on a journey during which the two learn about the harsh realities of life, slavery, God, and one another's culture.

    1.0 von 5 Sternen Good Story that ends in the beginning of the middle 21. Juni 2013
    Von Patsy Melton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    This book held my attention, but just when it was getting the most interesting, the book abruptly ends. No resolution to the problems and issues raised in the book, just ended. This makes me think the original book has been divided into segments by the producer/editor/publisher to get more money. In other words, like the radio serials of old, you have to 'tune in to the next chapter'. Well, tune me out.
