Synopsis

The Christmas Angel by Marcia Willett

'We're all pilgrims', he said thoughtfully. 'One way or another, aren't we? Always searching for something'.

Forming a slightly unconventional family setup with Dossie are the jovial nuns of the local convent and the wonderfully eccentric Janna - a warm-hearted, generous woman who looks after little Jakey when she's not helping at the nunnery. With humour, kindness and a deep need of somewhere to belong, they form a tight bond. But the sisters' life as they know it is at risk when an avaricious property developer starts prowling around their Grade I listed building. Will this close-knit unit who so depend on each other still be together next Christmas? And what will they have learnt about the true meaning of family?

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
