By Devin K. Parrish
Written as a means to handle grief and loss, this book delves into a daughter’s 27-year relationship with her mother before she dies. God’s Favorite 21st Century Angel is a powerful narrative that will make readers both laugh and cry.
Not everyone has a “normal” set of parents – normal in the sense that mom and dad are around the same age. Author Devin K. Parrish’s father was 23 years younger than her mom, but that never stopped her family from providing a healthy, loving home life. In fact, Devin and her mom were very close, sharing frank discussions about God, love, sex, food and many other topics that are beautifully expressed from page to page in God’s Favorite 21st Century Angel.
This love narrative spans over 70 years, beginning with her mother’s childhood in Chattaroy, West Virginia during the 1930s and stretching to when her mom is in her 40s. It is during this time that she meets a young man barely out of high school with whom she has a baby out of wedlock while still married to her first husband. She soon divorces her first husband and marries the author’s father. That union takes the family and the readers across the country from Cincinnati to Denver and Fort Wayne, Indiana to Gastonia, North Carolina then back to Cincinnati as a story of love unfolds; but the family meets a major crisis in 2005 as the author’s mother dies of pancreatic cancer.
God’s Favorite 21st Century Angel is a story of personal growth and inspiration, a biography that captures the love between a daughter and her mother, and the type of bond that transcends time and space.
