rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was cute and charming, but almost too cute. It is the last book in a series (and I haven't read the others)about the inhabitants of an island off the coast of Maine. This island is not only inhabited by humans but also by angels (who the humans believe are other humans). This book focuses on Annie, a 30ish young woman who was raised by her aunt, who is the last descendant of the founder of the island. Her aunt dies, and leaves her this large money pit of a house. She is also trying to decide if she wants to get serious with her boyfriend. The other main character is Edith, the pastor's wife, who is dieting to try to fit into a dress. Of course she is in a hurry and doesn't want to follow the sensible "pound pinchers" diet, but rather tries every fad out there. Everyone lives happily ever after, and while the book is full of religious thoughts, for some reason they just don't seem serious. It was kind of a fun read, and yet, kind of silly too.
