RETRIEVING ANGELS (Literary Fiction)
Where do you find the perfect boy, the boy all the girls on the radio sing about, the boy who will be better than God?
Gina Fontana knows.
After surviving a terrifying attack as a child, Gina is haunted by paralyzing fears. Her mother laments that she is ruined. It becomes the big family problem and the big family secret.
Gina copes by immersing herself in a dream world filled with the music of her favorite rock star Paul McCartney. He becomes her imaginary protector, her shining knight, and the boy who keeps all the bad thoughts away... until the day when a real flesh and blood boy comes along and intrudes on her comfortable fantasy.
>>>Set in Miami in the 1960s and filled with characters as diverse, exuberant, and colorful as the South Florida landscape, RETRIEVING ANGELS is sometimes poignant, sometimes gritty, irreverent, funny, sexy.
RETRIEVING ANGELS moves as fast as a summer's afternoon thunderstorm,
as fast as that wild summer when you first knew love and your whole world changed forever.
