"This book captured my heart and in some ways mirrored my life. After my child's death, books became an integral part of my journey through grief. The Angel with the Golden Glow is a book that I can use to share my story and my child, to show the hope a special angel can give and the joy another special angel can bring. It is a book to share with others who face a similar loss or simply to remind us of the inspiring gifts given by the smallest angels in our lives."

"There are few books dealing with the death of a child from a cause other than sudden death syndrome... and few books for siblings of a child who dies. Elissa Al-Chokhachy's new book helps fill a void in children's literature."
The Boston Globe

"The Angel with the Golden Glow gave so much back to me that I had lost with the death of my son, Joshua Ian. This story, and the story behind it, has brought me a sense of peacefulness and light that has lifted my heart as only true angels can."
Christina MacGregor

"The comforting story of Vail, 'who never said a word, but moved so many' helps put the seemingly senseless deaths of young children into a meaningful spiritual perspective. This book is destined to become a standard in church and hospital gift shops, as well as other venues sensitive to higher spiritual consciousness."
The NAPRA Review
"This book is heaven sent. After our son Brett died, my husband and I couldn't put it down. A light and beautiful way of dealing with such a heart rendering subject. Thank you!"
Krysta Stanley
"The Angel with the Golden Glow should be in every library. It is beautifully written and beautifully illustrated with a universal message for all."
