Jody Sharpe wrote the books in the Mystic Bay series after the loss of her daughter, and 20 Moon Rd.: An Angel's Tale is the fifth book in the series. An angel from Mystic Bay, Kenneth Leighton, is tasked by a late psychic to write her biography. Madam Norma Gilbert spent one hundred years in Mystic Bay. Madam Norma could see angels, and she had prophetic visions, but she didn't prosper financially from her psychic gifts. She relates the story of her life through visions, and "Angel Ken" gathers other information for the narrative from the people whose lives Madam Norma touched. The angels worry about humans discovering their secret, but Angel Ken learns a valuable lesson.
Although the book is fictional, Jody Sharpe reveals a world many readers wish existed. Her daughter, Kate, passed away, and an experience with a being the author believed was an angel after her daughter's death inspired Sharpe's writing. This book is wholesome, and it could appeal to readers of any age. Readers will be treated to two stories in one book. They will get to know Madam Norma and the impact she had on those around her while also following Angel Ken's journey as he goes about his daily activities and tries to persuade the other angels to believe the book will not reveal their presence in Mystic Bay. I encourage you to read the books in order to get the full effect of the loving community Sharpe has created, but you can easily read the stories out of order. Jody Sharpe's 20 Moon Rd.: An Angel's Tale is a good selection for readers who enjoy clean novels about angels living among humans.
