The fourth series entry (after The Island of Heavenly Daze, Grace in Autumn, and Warmth in Winter) returns readers to Heavenly Daze, a small island off the coast of Maine whose inhabitants have been safeguarded by seven angels for over 200 years. Six of the angels have taken human form and live among the residents, who don't question their peculiarities, such as never aging or getting sick. In this installment, Barbara and Russell Higgs face infertility problems and constant interference from Barbara's mother, which endangers their relationship. The marriage of Dana and Mike Klackenbush is also undergoing strains, and Dana's brother, Buddy, tries desperately to fill the hole in his lonely life. Amusing incidents, including disastrous remodeling attempts at the church, keep the pace brisk, and the angelic assistance is low-key but powerful. While Copeland (Roses Will Bloom Again) and Hunt (Then Comes Marriage) have ready romance audiences, readers unfamiliar with the series will have trouble finding their bearings with a setting and characters firmly established in preceding volumes. Recommended only for libraries that own the series.
