In these stories of miraculous rescue reported by Anderson, angels show up in many different guises: as voices, lights, intuitive thoughts and, frequently, in human form. (Fashion note: they seem to favor white outfits.) Sometimes the angel who saves the day is visible only to the bad guys, as in the story of an inner-city counselor who was threatened by a menacing gang. Just as they were about to attack her, the youths noticed her 7-foot boyfriend and turned on their heels and fled. But there was no boyfriend; the woman was alone at the time. Many of the other stories that appear in these pages involve car disasters—so many, in fact, it makes you wonder what angels did before there were automobiles. (Ballantine, $10)
