The boyhood friends have been estranged as adults because of their mutual love of another woman (now dead) some years before. History seems destined to repeat itself, with Marie in the thick of it. Her involvement in the lives of the two men, as well as in the community, leads to a range of exciting relationships and lands Marie in the center of the mystery of a long-unsolved local murder. Eventually she must make her decision: with whom will she cast the lot of her future?
Marie first becomes attached to a mysterious girl named Gwendolyn, a musical prodigy, and to Iain Barclay, the local curate. Iain's unconventional doctrine challenges Marie to rethink her opinions about God. Though feelings begin to evolve between Marie and Iain, the introduction of the duke, Alasdair, creates a new dynamic of loyalty and friendship that forces Marie to re-evaluate where she should put her trust. Marie faces doubt and confusion as she learns more about Iain and Alasdair's past mutual love interest: a woman who died years ago.
Marie always saw herself as shy and quiet, but the people of Port Scarnose bring out a spirit of enthusiasm in her. She learns to love the seemingly simple personalities of the Scots, but is even more drawn to them once their secrets unfold. Her faith is also questioned as she realizes that even though she is not a "church person," she may still have a longing within her to know God.
Angel Harp was an easy plot to follow and, for the most part, kept me engaged. I enjoyed the spiritual core of this book, but thought the first couple of chapters were fairly clichéd. However, I would recommend this book to women who like romance novels. Tara Gnagy, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
