Overview

Orphaned at a young age, the lives of Rosie, Gavin, Nell, and Kevin are irrevocably intertwined. Rising from poverty, all four go on to stunning success: Rosie as an award-winning costume designer; Gavin as a world-renowned Hollywood actor; Nell as the head of a global public relations company; and Kevin as the head of the NYPD Crime Intelligence Commission and a leader in the fight against organized crime.

Told with the broad scope and narrative power characteristic of Barbara Taylor Bradford, this book is the story of a family formed by fortune, not blood, as they lose their innocence, follow their passions, triumph over adversity, and ultimately transform their own lives.

¿Angel¿ is an extremely long novel about Rosie, Nell, Gavin and Kevin who are friends. Gavin is a movie star and Rosie designs costumes for his movies and, in theory, other people¿s movies. Kevin is Rosie¿s sister and an NYPD officer. Nell is a successful publicist. The first 140 pages of this book introduce these people and tell us what they all think of each other. The next third of the book elucidates how, even though they are all fabulously rich and successful (except Kevin¿s not rich, because he¿s a cop, but he¿s still very good at it), none of them are very good at having a personal life and managing romantic relationships. In the last third of the book, the four friends seem to begin to suck slightly less, but alas, they do not. The book also begins to suck slightly less, but then, just as it threatens to have some sort of plot, the loose ends are abruptly severed (NOT tied up) and the book ends happily ever after. Wow, was this a giant waste of my time.

I loved Ms. Bradford's Emma Harte series, so I looked forward to reading this book. I was sadly disappointed after reading it! There isn't much of a story, and when it finally does get interesting, it ends! Read Bradford's other novels-don't waste time on this one.
