Review: Angel of Trevi


Angel of Trevi
By Elizabeth Owen

J.T. Cavanaugh thought he was losing his mind. He hadn’t wanted to believe the figure appearing before him was real. He’d wanted her to be a dream, a figment of his overworked imagination. If she’d been merely a dream, he could take stronger sleeping pills or pinch himself each time he saw her or, by sheer strength of will, banish her from his waking and sleeping life…banish her from his mind.

Have the tissue handy when you venture into Elizabeth Owen’s ANGEL OF TREVI. A poignant and heart wrenching story of love and loss that will surely become a “keeper” for many readers.

J.T. Cavanaugh has suffered a great loss that he is struggling to overcome. With a feeling of isolation he dwells in his pain and bitterness, to the point of experiencing what he believes are hallucinations. His dead wife has come back to lead him toward forgiveness and recovery. She insists he return to their house on Chesapeake Bay and reach out to the young man who ran her down, Jeff Carpenter.

Approaching the widowed mother of Jeff, J.T. requests a meeting with the boy, but the mother, Nancy, is reluctant to agree. Her son’s life is spinning out of control and though she is afraid of what J.T. plans to do, she finally grants permission for the meeting. As the three individuals form relationships with each other, a healing process begins to take place and bonds grow stronger with each meeting. Will they be able to heal past hurts and move forward to a stronger pain free life? Only time will tell, won’t it?

An emotional journey through grief and loss to acceptance and forgiveness, ANGEL OF TREVI is a keeper in every sense of the word. The author’s brilliant sense of description allows the reader to be swept into the pain and grief of the characters while cheering them on to a happier future. I laughed, I cried, I was completely caught up in the lives of these admirable characters. The appearance of Kelly throughout the book tempts this reader to truly believe in the appearance of spirits. Sure to be a jewel in Elizabeth Owen’s crown, ANGEL OF TREVI is very easy to recommend for anyone who loves a great love story. Bravo!
