#Orangeberry Book Review - Angel by Laura Lee

AngelAngel by Laura Lee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Here's yet another overdue review. Overdue only because my reading pile got way too high and I didn't want to rush the review for such a stunning story. There's a slight flurry of controversy when it hits you that this book is about two men who are falling in love. Then, comes the rush of the scandal as you realise that one of these men is a priest.

This is exactly where the author works her magic. Forget what your personal sentiments are to this issue. You will soon be sucked into the story of two men who go beyond the love for each other. What is more than love for someone else? Love and acceptance for yourself. If you do not have this, you cannot love anyone else.

There is also the aspect of loss. The author paints this so realistically that you almost wonder how much of this story is fiction and if parts of it were real, what was the part she played in it? Upon losing your spouse, the person you vowed to love "till death do us part", is a new relationship able to heal you or does it open up more wounds?

Excellent, excellent piece.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 5 /5
Editing: 5 /5
Formatting: 5 /5
Pacing: 5 /5
Offensive content?: NC17 to R for theme and content.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
