"Involving and well-structured time-travel"
Beth Kincaide's hobby is brass rubbing. During a holiday
in England, she can't resist doing a rubbing of Olivia
Elizabeth Avenlyng, a young woman who died 600 years ago.
In fact, she feels compelled to rub the hauntingly
beautiful memorial brass even though her increasingly
agitated husband, Kevin, wants to leave.
When Beth touches the brass, she finds herself somehow
transported back 600 years into the life of Elizabeth
Avenlyng. It's as if she *is* Elizabeth, facing the
dilemma of an illegitimate pregnancy and an abusive
husband. The experience is unnerving, but Beth tries to
put it out of her mind. Until, back home in the US,
Elizabeth visits her again. The experience is even more
intense, and Beth is at a loss what to do.
At the same time, her life seems to be unraveling. Her
husband, in spite of evidence to the contrary, is convinced
the visitations are all in Beth's imagination and insists
she see a psychiatrist. Kevin has always been domineering,
but now his behavior has crossed the line into
intolerable. As if that weren't enough, his unhinged ex-
wife, Zenia, seems determined to break up Beth's marriage
so she can get Kevin back. And over everything hangs the
question of Elizabeth. Is she real? If so, is she a good
spirit or an evil one? And what does she want with Beth?
FLIGHT OF ANGELS is an involving and well-structured read
that I found difficult to put down. The narrative pulls
the reader from chapter to chapter as the life of Elizabeth
unfolds, intertwining with Beth's modern-day experience.
It's a thoroughly entertaining effort from a
talented author, and I'm looking forward to her next
This book isn't technically a romance, but the
characterizations and relationships are strongly portrayed
and should appeal to a wide range of readers, romantically
inclined and otherwise.
I Highly Recommended it.
