Edith is trying to lose weight in every way imaginable to get into a certain dress by the time Salt and Birdie's April wedding rolls around. Olympia dies suddenly, leaving her daughter Annie the beloved old house, which she can't afford to keep and maintain on her professor's salary. Leaving it would be cutting herself off from Heavenly Daze, and she can't bring herself to do that, although A.J. is urging her to move to New York to be near him. Plus, Caleb tells her he's being "transferred" at the end of the month! Annie has to learn how to find God's will . . . and open herself up to a new love that's been under her nose the entire time.
Edith Wickam, married to the pastor of the Heavenly Daze Community Church, has her heart set on wearing a designer dress to the wedding of the year. Trouble is, the zipper won't close! With only a few days to lose the pounds that stand between her and perfect elegance, will she find a diet that works? And can she summon the determination to stick with it?
Annie Cuvier is at peace with her world until tragedy presents her with a series of life-changing decisions. Should she say farwell to the island of Heavenly Daze and move to Manhattan? Or should she turn away from what others would call a "sure thing" and try to make a life on the island that has sheltered her through so many storms?
Come join us for another month on Heavenly Daze, where angels stand guard and heaven is but a breath away.
Part of a series and you will love each book as much as the previous.
Excellent book with a beautiful description of heaven. There are angels all around us :)
This book follows in the tradition of the other Heavenly Daze books - combining a sweet story and the powerful message of God's love. I related well to the pastor's wife - Fighting so hard to do things my way until God finally has to bring me to the end of my resources so He can show me His provision.
The Heavenly Daze books are a must read! These stories portray an incredibly small New England town on a remote island where angels abide among the villagers to lend a "helping hand". These books made me feel good just to read them. They were very heartwarming, yet also showed the true "nature" of people and how frustrating it can be to live in a town where everybody knows everything about you! I would definitely recommend all of the books in this series. Each book relates a different story/situation about the people (and angels)who reside on the island and the reader becomes greatly attached to each resident. I couldn't wait to read the next book in this series!
I thoroughly enjoyed this series! The characters development and interactions are excellent.
If you enjoyed the Mitford series by Jan Karon, you will love Heavenly Daze.
