David Baker, Snapshots of A Marriage: "As erotically compelling as the Song of Songs."
Dan Barnett, Chico Enterprise-Record: "Sexually charged: I was struck by [Park Tracey's] lush, hothouse, erotic style."
Christa Martin, Santa Cruz Good Times: "Tongues of Angels swings open the doors to the Catholic Church, lifts up the chasuble and exposes what's underneath...Her novel talks about all the things [they] hope we won't talk about."
Kelly Vance, East Bay Express: "Hot under the collar? A scandalous yarn."

The philosophical and spiritual aspects of Tongues of Angels run deep, and it's clear that the author has definitely dotted the Is and crossed the Ts on her research. When I went and did a little research of my own after finishing Tongues of Angels (in just 2 days! I was addicted!), I found out that the story was based in part on a true story, and that was intriguing in itself. I'd love to know more about the real life characters that Rob, Jessica and Lawrence represent.
I would recommend Tongues of Angels to people who like a well-written, sensually beautiful book with a little controversy and a pinch of scandal. I'll definitely be looking for Julia Park Tracey's future work!
How did you feel about the opening / ending sequences of the book? I enjoyed the beginning very much. The characters were given a strong foundation and the readers had a good idea of what they are getting themselves into.
Who was your favourite character and why? I am going to choose Jessica. Her questions and life situation helps Father Souza more than she knows.
What were the main relationships explored in this book? Obviously, religion was explored. More specifically, readers were given an inside look into the Catholic church.
Was this book worth reading? It is definitely worth reading and even if it doesn't entertain you, it will enlighten you.
Disclosure - I received a complimentary copy from the author which did not affect my honest opinion.
