In the Shadow of a Badge
I read this book because I wanted to learn more about the field of angels at the crash site of Flight 93 on 9/11 in Shanksville, PA. Lille Leonardi, an FBI agent serving at the crash site, has written this memoir of her personal spiritual journey in regards to this vision she was gifted with. By sharing her journey she helps others with theirs.
The beautifully illustrated cover of the book says, “A Memoir About Flight 93, a Field of Angels, and My Spiritual Homecoming.”
If you are looking for a memoir about Flight 93 from an FBI perspective, you will not find it here. Bureau policy mandates that no classified or sensitive information be revealed, and Ms. Leonardi explains this in a succinct closing note. She is highly professional in keeping any FBI-related information general and generic.
If you are looking for an in-depth story about the field of angels, you will also not find that here. The vision she was given that she shares is incredibly powerful, profound, and pointed. The book is spent on her processing the vision and its effect on her life, rather than on the vision itself–which fulfills the purpose of her book. I give it four stars out of five because I was looking for something else, but this is still a good book.
If you are looking for a supportive story of one person’s spiritual homecoming to encourage and inspire you with your own, drop everything and go get this book! (Click on any of the links below now, and finish reading this afterward. Really. I’ll still be here for you.) If you are looking for details and depth about the angels that were present at the crash site, this is not your source.
A very human example of the ever-present divine support on our spiritual journey through EarthSchool, this book is a beautiful reminder that God totally has our back. Every time we turn around, He is there–whether we see it at the time or not. Heck, He’s there whether we even turn around or not! After reading this book, I felt hugely Divinely supported and connected, and that my incredible human-ness and journey is something to embrace.
Hay House gifted me with this book in partnership with my honest opinion of it. Their Book Nook blogger program rocks, and I am grateful!
Thank you so much for your comment, it is truly an honor to meet you! Your book is a gift to read–thank you for sharing the story of your journey, it’s important.
I very much look forward to your next one, no matter the topic! 🙂
Thank you kindly for taking the time to read and review my book. Though the book was not what you expected, I am grateful that you were open to my viewpoint and that you graciously shared it with others.
Ms. Leonardi, please allow me to express my gratitude. I have had a major learning lesson because of you, your book, and our conversation about it, and I thank you for the growth.
This is one of those situations where a person goes about their business just doing their thing, not knowing they make a difference. Well, I’d like you to know that you do make a difference! 🙂
Take care, and keep writing.
Blessings to you for your kind comments. A long time ago, my father reminded me of the importance of helping others. If indeed the book does aid anyone searching for their path, then I have done as my dad had hoped.
