Then their world collapsed around them. Morag, the strongest and quietest of the three girls, lost everything she held dear in one savage bombing. Vallery's beloved brother was killed in the desert war, and Jannie - well, Jannie had never had much to start with anyway.
With a father away at war and a succession of 'uncles' passing through her mother's bedroom, she grew up both insecure and promiscuous. But still, she had Moray and Vallery. . .
When the Reid boys returned from the war it was Berry, the vibrant one, who had changed. Crippled, both in mind and body, he held the dream of Morag in his mind, even though it was Vallery he married.
As they settled into a life, in the remote cliff-side Abbey, away from everyone, so the old ties between the three girls and the Reid brothers grew more intense, more confused - and Morag, Vallery and Jannie discovered that Berry still had the power to draw them all to him.
Just finished listening to 'Touched by Angels' and I could not stop listening. At first it was a slow burn and then then the characters took over and just when you thought you had sussed the plot there was a twist. I was so disappointed to reach the end as I wanted to know more about them and there is definately the scope for a sequel. Yes I loved it. If you want a book to transport you to another almost forgotten time this one is it.
