After the death of her longtime friend and flatmate, retired British history teacher Julia Garnet does something completely out of character: She takes a six-month rental on a modest apartment in Venice. She befriends a young Italian boy and English twins who are restoring a fourteenth-century chapel. And she falls in love for the first time in her life with an art dealer named Carlo.
Juxtaposing Julia's journey of self-discovery with the apocryphal tale of Tobias and the Archangel Raphael, Miss Garnet's Angeltells a lyrical, incandescent story of love, loss, miracles, and redemption and of one woman's transformation and epiphany."

Review quote

Praise forMiss Garnet's Angel
Artfully wrought, told with a bracing directness and lucidity . . . a gem. The Wall Street Journal
"Novel-writing at its finest and most eloquent . . . splendid . . . the sort of book that effortlessly, like angels, or sunlight on Venice's rippling waterways, casts brightness and beauty into those private and most shadowed recesses of the human heart." The Christian Science Monitor"
