Suddenly One Summer by Barbara Freethy
In the California coastal town of Angel's Bay, an old legend says that sometimes, when they're needed, angles from an old shipwreck appear and good triumphs over evil.
Jenna Davies flees to the close-knit community of Angel's Bay with a seven-year-old child, a dangerous secret, and a heart full of pain.
