How Charity changed our lives Dec 2, 2008
I read this book when it first came out many years a go. I have always loved reading books by Yorgason and noticed this book is a true story story about his family. I was touched by the love this family had for a sevely handicapped girl who wasn't even their's biologically. I was even more touch with the love Charity gave to those around her. I can't believe a child with out a brain could change so many lives!!!
I never imagined that my family would experience anything like the Yorgason's, but I was wrong. One year after reading "One Tattered Angel" for the first time, my cousin also had a daughter who was born without a brain. Her name is Amelia Grace. The past 10 years with Amelia has been difficult with many ups and downs but our family would never trade the great blessings Amelia brings into our lives. Reading the story of Charity brings peace, hope and love into our lives.

A miracle experience! Jul 15, 2008
I first heard a part of this story from my Mother when I was young. I found it again later in life, read the whole story, and fell in love with Blaine's story all over again.
Miracles are all around us if we just open our eyes and SEE all that God has revealed to make man's life better!
One Tattered angel is a very great witness that miracles do happen and God is the God of all..... even the little ones.
Inspiring and Humbling Jun 24, 2000
This awesomely well-written little book is one of the most inspiring and humbling books I have read in a long time. I have given several as gifts and will give more. My sister's comments were that it "should be required reading for everyone." That pretty well sums it up. Highly recommended.
amazing and thought provoking May 8, 2000
i was on the island of st. martin recently, staying at a small hotel on the beach; to pass some time, i'd noticed they had "used" books on the shelf in the lobby to borrow and saw this little book called "one tattered angel". i started reading it and couldn't put it down. it affected the rest of my trip & my outlook on things, especially the power of prayer. i wanted to take the book with me - i was going to ask the hotel if i could buy it, just in case i couldn't find it anywhere. however, i noticed that it was signed by the author! i realized that the book needed to be left right there, so someone else could have the pleasure of reading it, like i did.
