Book Description:

We all have that someone we can’t forget, the summer it all began, and the sleepless nights wondering what went wrong.

For Gage Montgomery, that someone is Layla Baxter. When he was 18, he took one look at the chocolate-haired bookworm with porcelain skin and knew his life would never be the same. But it all came crashing down when Layla suddenly and mysteriously disappeared from St. Simons Island -- leaving him with nothing but her angel wing pendent around his neck. For 12 long years, Gage couldn’t shake what happened, if he’s the one to blame, wondering where Layla might be. When their paths finally cross, he’s determined to get the answers he’s spent his life searching for -- and to get the girl, too. Quiet Angel is a story of hope, survival, and lost love made new again.

“I missed you, too, but you were never far.” Gage touched his shirt with the wings inside. “You were always there.”

My Book Review:

Quiet Angel is a wonderful love story about two young teenagers who fall in love one summer, but they are separated by circumstances out of their control, until twelve years later when they are reunited and get a second chance at love.

Author Prescott Lane weaves a beautiful romantic tale that takes the reader on a emotional roller coaster ride as they follow Gage and Layla's love story. Gage and Layla's story is told in two parts: the unforgettable summer they spent on St. Simons Island, and their unexpected reunion twelve years later. Their story tugs at the heartstrings, but will make the reader a believer in second chances and true love.

The story has enough drama, romance, angst, hope, belief in angels and soul mates, difficult personal issues, and lost love found that will easily captivate the reader's attention. You can't help but feel compassion for Gage and Layla as their story unfolds with intriguing twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages, and hoping that they will get their second chance at love. I loved how the author draws the reader into their story with their teenage summer of love on the island, then keeps the reader following their separate adult lives, until their unexpected reunion twelve years later. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the author's thoughtful depiction of Layla's suffering from abuse, it was handled with grace, and made me feel empathy, compassion, and admiration for Layla's strength and ability to survive and overcome the trauma of her past.

Quiet Angel is a beautiful story of second chances, true love, and moving forward from traumatic pasts that will resonate with you for a very long time.
