This is a beautiful short story about soul mates and what it means to give up everything for the one you love.
Gabriel is an angel in heaven who looks after souls. He nurtures them until they are ready to go back to earth. He is gentle and empathetic but he has no bench mark for feelings as that is not how heaven works. When the soul is in hand ‘feels’ different, almost as though he can sense a connection with it, he is left startled and confused.
Luke is born into an army family and has no qualms believing he has a guardian angel. The stunning blonde haired beauty that he sketches is who he believes his guardian angel is and his name is Gabriel. As Luke grows up he catches glimpse of Gabriel and as a young man when his life is in danger he is sure that Gabriel is always there and looking out for him. When a tragedy strikes his family he turns his back on God and in turn Gabriel but something tells him Gabriel is still there even if he is hurting.
Gabriel is in a position where no other angel can offer advice as his situation is so unique. He has defied angelic reason and developed feelings for Luke which just grow stronger and stronger as the year’s progress. He aches to be able to touch him physically, to be with him all the time and to share his life.
This is very different from Sandrine’s norm – there are no Skull Blasters in sight for one thing – but at the same time it is also very similar. Sandrine always gives us men who seem to be at odds with their mates, whose situations often seem impossible but who do whatever it takes to have their true love. Gabriel will have to make the ultimate sacrifice to have his love and even then he may not survive, but there are no guarantees in love and Gabriel is determined to do everything in his power to obtain his dream even if the fall kills him.
