The book

Earth Angels

"I have always believed in angels and their spiritural dimensions. I am fascinated by their ordered society and imagine them with cloudlike bodies. Telepathic in nature, they try and touch people daily to affect change in the world. This creates an oasis of peace. In the society of angels, one law prevails: the law of love and perfection. How nice is that! Their mission is to help humans grow in wisdom and love. They are ancient servants of God and humanity. Angels listen with their five senses, but also with their heart."

A passage from Marion Mutala's latest book for Happy Leopard Chapbooks, to raise money for the charity Nashi. Mutala is dedicated to assisting Nashi in its efforts to safeguard and educate girls vunerable to human trafficking.

In Earth Angels, Mutala takes the reader through a brief history of the types of angels. She dedicates the book to those who volunteer for Nashi, calling them Earth Angels.
