A Terrific Goodreads Review!

Thank you Linda for such a wonderful review in Goodreads! Read what she has to say about The Angel Connection:

I recently received a copy of The Angel Connection by Judith Anne Barton in exchange for an honest review. I thought the premise of this book sounded really interesting, and I was not disappointed. This is the story of two women. In 1996 we meet Morgan, a twice-divorced unemployed woman who is estranged from her grown son. She decides to make a fresh start, so she moves to Bucks County, Pa, site of the Pa Impressionist movement. In 1895 we meet Evangeline, a preacher's wife and mother to 3-year old Willie. Evangeline (Angel) is a talented artist who has given up painting in order to support her husband in his ministry. She is trapped in a loveless marriage, and she meets a famous painter, Daniel. The author tells the parallels between the lives of both women. I could feel both stories building to a big conclusion. I found myself crying at times, because the book was so moving. I really felt the pain of the characters. This book had a bit of everything for me - love, passion, betrayal, karma, mystery, secrets, romance, history, tragedy, redemption, and a paranormal aspect that I found to be quite unique. This is a debut novel for Ms. Barton, and I hope she continues to write. I thought this book was hauntingly beautiful. It was a book I didn't want to put down.
