Angels in the attic
Years ago, a little girl became lost in the dense woods just outside the scenic coastal village of Stony Point, Maine. Saved by a mysterious stranger who protected her until help arrived, the little girl was convinced that her guardian was an angel. Now, nearly 70 years later, Annie Dawson finds evidence of the little girl's fascination with angels in the attic of her Victorian-era home. A scrapbook replete with images of, and stories about, angels defines both the trauma and victory of the little girl's experience. But why did Betsy Holden, the grandmother who bequeathed Grey Gables to Annie, have the scrapbook? Annie is intrigued by the discovery of the angelic collection and sets out to find its owner. At the same time, Annie and her friends in the Hook and Needle Club are planning for Stony Point's annual mother-daughter banquet set for the week after Mother's Day. June Wallace, wife of the pastor of Stony Point Community Church, normally coordinates the event, but she has her hands full caring for her ill sister. Annie throws herself into the work for the mother-daughter banquet, but finds herself thinking more and more of her own daughter, LeeAnn, back in Annie's native Texas. In the years since moving back to Stony Point, Annie has never shared the tradition with LeeAnn. Why should this year be any different. Will the twists and turns of tracking down the owner of the angelic scrapbook lead Annie and her friends into harm's way? Or will it prove to Annie that, indeed, there are angels among us?
