's mind and soon ignites a uest to rediscover her lost memories With David's help she begins to piece together the fragments of not only her own story but that of her daughter Cheska who was the tragic victim of circumstances beyond her control And most definitely not the angel she appeared to b. This is an interesting book to review because some readers may have already read this when it was first published in 1995 under the authors' previous pen name of Lucinda Edmonds Since it would appear that the time is right for a reissue the story has been redone keeping some elements of the original but with some sections reworked thus breathing new life into a story which is as fresh and characterful now as it was in its original formatThe story begins as Greta returns to Marchmont Hall in Monmouthshire Wales after an absence of thirty years Greta's memory of her life at Marchmont was irretrievably damaged when she was involved in a dreadful accident which altered her memory thus making her recollection of her previous life hazy and filled with shadowsMuch has happened to Greta during this time her life and that of her family has been very eventful not without tragedy and always with an element of misfortune What then follows is a cleverly and intricately constructed family saga which spans several years and which flips forwards and backwards in time mainly following the fortunes of Greta and her daughter Cheska The peripheral characters who flit into and out of the story are strong and meaningful and add a real sense of continuity The story is long coming it at over 600 pages but as always the story draws you in from the beginning The characters become as familiar as friends some you learn to like whilst others become deeply unlikable but as always the strength of the story lies with the telling The fine attention to detail the authenticity of the setting and the gloriously good story telling all combine to make this into another commendable novel from this talented authorI hadn't read the book when it was first published so was I was perfectly happy to read The Angel Tree with no preconceptions of what had gone before I'm sure however that those readers who read the novel when it was entitled 'Not uite An Angel' will find much to enjoy in this reissued version
