Merlie is a young girl who becomes a birdman's prey and will be hunted down the rest of her life. A woman who can restore health and an ancient plant with special powers try to help her escape this curse. A yellow-bellied screech ball also becomes part of her life and helps her to cope. Their biggest problem happens when a birdman comes to live in their forest.
Angels Watching follows the unlikely pathway of a shy little country girl from a small town in Indiana as she breaks out of the mold in which life has placed her, becomes the first of her family to go to college, follows a call to mission, greets life's joys and weathers its sorrows with faith, tenacity and wit, and continues to welcome new challenges as she approaches her eightieth birthday and looks forward to her one hundredth. With humor and reverence she tells of growing up poor in a large family where "dysfunctional was normal" - but where love, loyalty, hard work and ingenuity won out. She tells of her first angel sighting as a young child, and of many times throughout her life when she knew that angels were watching over her.
