Angel On My Shoulder

Angel on My Shoulder, 1st published September 2014. Republished as Angel on My Shoulder (Sarah’s Story) July 2015

Sarah is having a bad day! At 37½ life is going nowhere fast. She’s been dumped by her latest boyfriend, again! She’s lost her latest job, again! And her mother’s driving her mad, again! To top it all, she can’t even have a moan in peace without Clarabelle piping up every two minutes trying to cheer her up, again! Clarabelle is, of course, Sarah’s ‘Guardian Angel,’ whose job it is to constantly keep Sarah’s spirits up – an annoying distraction to say the least! Clarabelle certainly has her work cut out where Sarah is concerned!

Having reached rock bottom, Sarah reluctantly accepts Clarabelle’s help, growing gradually from a chaotic, lost young woman into the person she always wanted to be. With the angel’s help she is ready at last for her soulmate Simon to enter her life. Throughout her journey a team of angels have regular ‘inter-angel-cy’ meetings, mapping out and planning Sarah’s life for her, often getting it very wrong with hilarious results!

Sarah’s story brings hope, magic and inspiration from the beginning right through to its uplifting conclusion; drawing the reader into an emotional rollercoaster that will make you laugh, cry and ultimately leave you with a smile on your face and quite possibly with an empty box of tissues!

“Grab this book! You won’t regret it. The message is one anyone can appreciate, and that we all know, but put in such a different way that you can’t help but embrace it. The author has done a phenomenal job of creating something that will live with me the rest of my days and I’m so thankful for that! Great book, easy to read and fun all the while! Thank you, author Julie Poole!” – Laney Smith (author)

“A wonderful book to snuggle up on the sofa with as the nights draw in.”

“…..Angel on My Shoulder has some very engaging and emotionally powerful moments. ….Julie Poole does a great job …..The angels brought a certain humour to the story…..This is a very enjoyable story that will make you smile from beginning to end. Angel on My Shoulder is Julie Poole’s debut novel and I do believe she is an author to follow.” – Eye Review

“Angel on my Shoulder is an excellent story that deserves to be read by anyone with a heart. A touching story about a woman getting her life together by actually listening to the prompts of the world around her, including the angelic realms. The narrative flows smoothly and quickly to a conclusion that should satisfy all of the readers…..It really is a love story with a difference rather than a ‘chick story’. An excellent read that is highly recommended. It would make a great film along the lines of a ‘Notting Hill’ if any film maker fancied a challenge to make the story come to life on the big screen. For a debut novel it is a very mature literary product that augers well for a future career in print. Well done Julie!!”  – Stephen C Chainey.

“I just LOVED this book and actually found it hard to put it down and go to sleep! I laughed, I cried, I empathised, my heart went out to all the characters (and me too, the reader because I could resonate with much of it). Can’t wait to start reading the next one!”

“Angel on My Shoulder” by Julie Poole is a wonderful and uplifting book, written with great intent and charm. An ambitious angel tries to rectify the wrongs in Sarah’s life. Through whispering in her ear she directs Sarah to a better way of dealing with her chaotic life. The angel characters are charming and sweet, the scenes between Sarah and her mother hilarious and the message is inspirational. A beautiful read.”
