A week before Christmas and Jamie's twelve-year old world is about to be shaken to its very core: his best friend Dan is diagnosed with a brain tumour. Jamie can't believe it; nobody can. He looks for assurance from his family and his other friend, Teddy, but their help is limited. Instead, he finds strength in his new neighbour, a kind yet strange old man with eyes like the ocean, who always seems to be there when he needs him. Life once again takes a whole new turn for Jamie when Dan reveals a secret: he woke up to find angels at the side of his bed and now he's no longer afraid of dying. Jamie finds it almost too much to take; his world and how he thinks of it is changing too fast; things don't make sense anymore. Once more, it's his new neighbour who comforts him and explains everything in a way that Jamie will never forget. It's only right at the very end that the identity of this mysterious figure, who has been like a mentor to Jamie, is revealed. Waiting for Wings is based on true events. A friend of mine was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2007, and a week before losing his speech he told us how he woke up to find angels at the side of his bed. Before his passing in 2008, I promised him I would write a book about him. I hadn't intended on publishing it as it was written as a gift for his family, but when they read it they said other people would be comforted by its message. With that said, I hope, after reading this little book, you understand that death is not what it seems to be. Praise for Waiting for Wings: "This book has blown me away!" "Absolutely wonderful and endlessly comforting." "A beautiful story, written with compassion and hope for us all." "A touching and very realistic story of cancer from a friend's point of view." "Stayed awake until 4am 'cos I couldn't put it down. Very moving yet leaves you with a smile. A must read for all." "[A] truly inspiring read."
