The Broken Window  (The Threshold #3) 
Published August 22nd 2013 by Zondervan  

(from Goodreads)
A four book series about a girl named Prissie Pomeroy, who discovers that she is able to see the angels that live among us---including her own guardian angel, Koji. As she becomes aware, she discovers an invisible world, and while parts of it are too beautiful for words, there are unspeakably terrible things as well. As a spiritual battle unfolds around her small town, over the course of the series, it becomes evident that there is a much larger war being waged, and Prissie has a large part to play. Prissie is awed by her glimpse of things to come. In the face of God's greatness, she feels very small indeed. As the series reaches its resolution, Prissie's burgeoning faith receives the support it needs to grow straight and strong... from both expected and unexpected quarters.
 THE BROKEN WINDOW is the third book in The Threshold Series.  Book One was THE BLUE DOOR, Book Two was THE HIDDEN DEEP and soon to come is Book Four, THE GARDEN GATE.  The series started out with the main character Prissie Pomeroy, a young 15 year old.
She has realized she can communicate with angels. The angels she has known have been from Heaven. When she sees the angels that have Fallen, she is very upset. From the first book THE BLUE DOOR, we have followed Prissie and watched her change from the naive young girl to a much more mature young adult.  She still has and cares for her angel friends. Prissie is about to learn some valuable lessons about what is important and what isn't. They are very important to her. Ms. Kinde doesn't fail to deliver a another wonderful book that is not only entertaining but carries a  spiritual message also.  There isn't any preaching, just a subtle message for the young readers. It is not a religious book, per say. The author has developed the characters throughout the series.  The reader is not only reading a story but they can become part of it.  They can be Prissie's friend. This is a wonderful book for the young and the young at heart to read and re-read. I don't think you can get enough of Prissie and her angels. Ms. Kinde gives the reader a book that is paced just right for the young reader.  They can be part of the adventure.  They will encounter demons, wars, angels, and more. They will encounter a war between the angels and demons. This series is a good, clean series with a big lesson to be learned in an easy way. I must warn you, you will want to read the entire series and even then you won't have enough.  Ms. Kinde has shared her talents with all of us, not just the young reader.  So gather up the series and start reading.  Best if you leave a little time, because once you start you won't want to quit.

I would give this book 4 STARS.

I was given a  complimentary copy of THE BROKEN WINDOW from the author, Christa Kinde for my unbiased review.

Behind the scenes, I'm a cheerful homebody whose many talents include dish-washing, laundry-sorting, and the weaving polysyllabic words into everyday conversation. First to know, last to tell, happy to try, and always true. A plotter and a plodder, a dabbler and a devotee. Weaknesses include bright colors, crazy socks, and alliteration. More to the point, I spend my days planning studies, plotting stories, and putting my nose to the proverbial grindstone ... because as much as I loves writing, it's work. Finding the perfect word, turning a phrase so it sparkles, giving a plot just a bit of a twist - they're worth every iota of effort. I'm delighted to have discovered what I want to do when I grow up!

 Readers of the Threshold Series should visit my blog to read Rough and Tumble, a side-story starring the frazzled guardian angel of Prissie's younger brother Zeke.
