Claudie, a lover of MGM musicals and Gene Kelly is the main protagonist and fears that she is going mad the day she sees a miniature lady diving into her pencil pot at work, but she isn't: instead she has just met Jalisa, the leader of one of five little angels who have been sent to help Claudie in her time of need. The angels are by her side as Claudie encounters the different stages of grief, though much to her chagrin she is the only person who can see them.
Aside from the main characters in the book who include Claudie, her best friend Kristen and Kristen's other best friend Simon, the five little angels are just fabulously written, all with their own personalities and little quirks and foibles. I loved how each one had one particular characteristic which made them perfect to help Claudie - especially the quiet Mr Woo and bold, outspoken Jalisa. As far as I'm concerned, Connelly could write another book just about them!
This book which is set between Whitby, York and Paris, could have been twee or too overdone in the grief aspect but it manages to be a positive, insightful read about love, life and friendship with its funny and sad moments in equal measure and you do wonder what you would do if you were ever, god forbid, in Claudie's position.Read more ›
I chose the book as I love reading about Angels. It had a good review and I downloaded the first sample chapter and i was hooked.
The story was based on Claudie who had recently become a young widow, and how she was coping, sounds sad and is but the story is not depressing at all, also the story gets us to know Claudie's friend Kristen and is about her relationship as a side story, and she knows Simon - who is introduced to Claudie, the rest I will let you read!
The angels are fantastic in the tale, so sweet and it is such a magical book. I was excited to read it was set in Whitby as I once had such a lovely day there on holiday! I loved the atmosphere of there and Paris, I enjoyed the book so much and didn't want it to end.
This is a fabulous novel, magical, witty and at times utterly heartbreaking. Victoria Connelly manages to delicately tap into the mind of a grieving widow whilst adding a fantastical magic element. The angels are fun and believable - not silly at all. And what a wonderful idea that there are a flight of angels out there waiting to help us through difficult times! I only hope that if I ever have to suffer such tragedy that I have my own flight to help me through it!
It is written nicely and you feel you know the character in depth but the story lacks something :-(
