Cleverly crafted by acclaimed author and motivational speaker Reverend Leo Booth, The Angel and the Frog is both a charming fable about relationships and an exquisite insight into life and human relationships, similar in the way George Orwell's classic Animal Farm was an insight into politics and governmental Big Brother.
When Christine, a tiny angel in training, falls from the sky into Turnbridge Pond—though not by accident—Cedric the Frog is shaken from his stupor as he quickly swims to save her. Christine's mission is to show Cedric and the other animals how to connect and ultimately become angels themselves, bringing true spirituality into their lives through a system called The Process—an interconnection of insight, wisdom, and harmony.
This imaginary world is a welcome metaphor for our lives today, where many feel disconnected from spirituality. It highlights social issues facing society—racism, bullying, homophobia, emotional abuse, low self-esteem, and shame. These are seemingly beyond our ability to control. The only option we have is how to respond to them. These difficult topics are presented with subtlety and grace with a great moral ending and characters you have no choice but to fall in love with along the way.
The Angel and the Frog is an uplifting read for all ages and all denominations, where in the end Cedric becomes an amphibian ambassador of spirituality, love, and what it means to become your own angel.
