G. Patrick "Toby" Tobin is, by his own admission, a computer hacker, a nerd. His agreeement to travel to Ireland in comliance with his great uncle's will is the step toward a grace which renews and affirms his own life. The quest to win the hand of his 8th cousin once removed, the fair Sara Anne, is facilitated by his "angel-cum-travel-agent" and comlicated by the UFF, his cousin's personal demons, and his own domineering family.
It will appeal to those who themselves yearn to respond to grace in their lives, the computer literate, and those who see dysfunction in their own nuclear families.
Besieged by an overbearing family, and hoplessly unable to fend for himself, young Toby is aided in his quest by the Seraph Raphaela (Rae). She finds herself up to her wings trying to keep him out of trouble and keep him focused in his quest to woo and win the lovely Sarah Anne. This young lady is far removed from the traditional textbook heroine, and presents our hero with a definite challange.
A very enjoyable read.
It's a pleasant enough love story, with the same old Greely plot and character types, but when you look back on it, you have to wonder: is God(dess) really so trite, banal, and capricious as to send angels (sexy, beautiful female angels, of course) to do all THAT for some computer nerd just because he happens to be named Tobias? Hmph.
