The Crispin Chronicles by Dawn Knox

Angels and Devils by William Wilson

    Cautionary tales of ordinary mortals doing extraordinary things. From moral dilemmas to a Nativity miracle, the author takes us on a deeply thoughtful journey through eleven tales of the unexpected. Are the protagonists angels or devils, or even a bit of both?

What would we do in their place? William Wilson makes us reflect in this collection of stories that take us by surprise.
