Julia Quinn is a brilliant physicist who dreams of making a name for herself in the world of science by discovering how to make teletransportation work. Her life revolves around her daughter, Emmi, and science, ever since her husband died. Emmi's greatest dream is for God to give her a new Daddy. Julia thinks her experiment is finally perfected, and when she tests it, is in for quite a surprise. Her equipment ends up capturing an angel! Emmi is thrilled, believing Joel is the answer to her prayers for a new daddy.
Now, they must figure out what went wrong so they can fix it and return Joel to his proper existence before it is too late and he's trapped forever. However, neither expected that they'd capture each other's hearts in the process, and they must now make a decision that could change their lives for eternity.
This was a pleasant story about "what ifs" and dreams come true, with a dose of inspirational thrown into the mix for good measure. Julia is lonely in her life, but doesn't realize it quite so much, believing it is full between her career, her daughter, and her few close friends. She had never truly loved her husband, so she isn't even quite aware of what she's missing in that respect. Joel is full of confusion when he is yanked out of his plane of existence, and sucked into Julia's world. He is also full of delight at the simplest of things, like the microwave, and excited over each new discovery he finds. Emmi is thrilled to have him in her life, convinced he was a gift to her from God, and prays daily he will stay forever, marry her mother, and be her daddy.
As Julia works against time to figure out what went wrong so she can return Joel to his realm, all the while she's wishing he could stay with them. Their love and passion grow from the close relationship that forms as they try to crack the equations, and both long for something that should be forbidden to them. This story reminds readers there is always hope. Though sometimes not easily understood, there is a reason for everything and fate (and a Higher Power) has a way of working, no matter what is stacked against it. This reviewer enjoyed this story and hopes to see more from this author in the future.
Just when you think there are no new subjects to write about, you open a book and become entranced in a new dimension. As Julia Quinn and her daughter, Emmi, prayed for someone to love, each found their answer in the same angel-man. Emmi found the daddy she wanted so badly and Julia found the love of her life.
Joel, captured from his angelic dimension in a university physicist's experiment Julia and her assistant, Linda, set into motion, entered the world of humans and all their limitations. He also found the simple pleasures, and pain, of love and friendship. As he took on more of the human traits and emotions he learned that, in the earthly realm, there are consequences to every action.
Love blooms between Joel and Julia as she lets go of the childhood pain and heartache that had kept her heart closed for so long. They both know their time together is limited and that, as soon as Julia works out the problems in her teletransportation experiments, Joel will have to return to heaven.
The dynamic end finally arrives and it is painful, yet bittersweet, for all three until Julia's childhood guardian angel intervenes. "Captured Angel" shows the reader that love can change not only the hearts and lives of humans but it can also change an angel too. This is a story of love and growth that holds the readers interest from beginning to end.
Great Book! Sep 3, 2003
This was a wonderful story that kept me turning the pages until the end of the book. Physicist Julia Quinn worked night after night on getting new discoveries in science made, while her 4-year-old daughter Emmi prayed for a "new daddy" for both her and her mother. When Joel, an angel, arrived during an experiment Julia was conducting, no one knew what to do. Emmi hoped that she had finally received her wish.
Joel, although boyish in his understanding of the world, captivated me as a reader due to his passion for life and love. I hope to see another book from Georgia Haynes!
4 Stars~~Romantic Times Book Club Review! Jun 17, 2003
Physicist Julia Quinn brings an angel to earth in an experiment that goes horribly wrong. However, her 4-year-old daughter, Emmi, had been praying for a "new daddy" every night since her father died the year before. Is it possible Emmi's prayers have been answered?
The reviewer: This captivating story touched my heart and had me reaching for the tissues. Since Joel was an angel, his lack of mundane knowledge and curiosity to learn about Earth has an endearing, child-like quality.
