Gale Frances’s new book, And The Angel Cried - The Miracle Of An Abandoned Baby In 1955, ($12.99, paperback, 9781498468787; $6.99, e-book, 9781498468794) tells the miraculous true story of a baby who was cruelly abandoned and left to die in the cold, damp woods of Indiana in 1955. She would have surely died that day had the hand of God not spared her life by leading a 14-year-old hunter to her intended gravesite. The author’s husband Dave Hickman was that 14-year old hunter. His commitment to never give up on his decades-long search to find that baby again resulted in their emotional reunion in Richmond, Indiana on May 4, 2014. This is a real life story of a tragedy that ended up as a fairy tale come true.

“For 48 years I saw the ache in my husband’s eyes, and felt the despair in his soul,” states the author. “His never-ending desire to know what happened to the infant girl he found abandoned in the woods of Indiana in 1955 haunted him relentlessly. I felt the call to write this story following the outpouring of responses from individuals all over the world, pleading to know more about his decades-long search, their reunion and our personal life. Anyone who values life will cherish this story. Those who believe, or want to believe, in Divine intervention will be brought to their knees!”

On May 5, 2014, “This Morning Show” on CBS broadcast the emotional reunion of Dave Hickman and Ellen (Baby Roseann) to a national audience. A video was posted simultaneously on “You Tube” to a worldwide audience – and as of April 2016, there have been 3,768,466 views. This amazing story has gained global attention and with this book, followers can now learn the rest of the story.

Gale Frances also wants to her book to help those who have suffered abandonment in their lives and provide hope for a better future and the ability to forgive. She hopes to instigate a “never give up” attitude to those searching for the answer of the question, “who am I?” And for those who have lost their faith and those who are seeking the meaning of life – she provides inspiration as they read about God's love, compassion, power and grace.
