Angel by Laura Lee is about a minster Paul Tobit who lost his wife to cancer. Paul's outlook and perception of life changes. He no longer wants to be a minister. Instead he becomes a tour bus driver. He reminisces that his favorite part of his old vocation was the funerals. The oddities of Paul's character are enjoyable. He is very much taken with men now as well. Various quotes and interesting facts about religion and biology accent each chapter.
The subject matter is definitely more in the public eye than 10 years go.  I was looking forward to reading this book but found the book to be a bit clumsy. I think it could use some editing. Its not a bad book it just needs some fine tuning. Some humorous lines sparkled like, "The ocean is sexier than corn."  Visit for more information.
