The Angels' Share free pdf Three love stories. Two worlds. Six characters trying bravely, if not always wisely, to make their romantic destinies come out right-if not in this lifetime, well, maybe in the next. Set partly in Santa Barbara, CA and its nearby wine country, and partly in a mysterious yet strangely believable version of the Afterlife, this big-hearted and redemptive novel employs a light touch in treating serious themes of family damage, second chances, and forgiveness. Darcy Barnett-a gifted chef on the brink of thirty, with issues when it comes to trusting men-meets Paul DeFiore, a 34-year old winemaker with family burdens of his own. They are so right for each other that it terrifies them both. Hugh Barnett-Darcy's father, a charming philanderer whose wandering ways created Darcy's mistrust in the first place-is determined to help them get together. Inconveniently, he's no longer among the living- no matter, he has two compelling reasons to find a way. He needs to be reconciled with his daughter before he can rest easy, and he's hoping, in the Afterlife, for a rapprochement with Sheila, the wife he cheated on and failed to appreciate, and who divorced him back on Earth. Along the way, he also meets Manny Klein, whose tragedy was meeting the love of his life too soon, and who for half a century has been hoping to see his soul-mate Emma again-somehow, somewhere, anywhere. Powerfully romantic, often funny, THE ANGELS' SHARE interweaves the stories of these three sets of lovers. It taps into the universal yearning to believe that those who were most important in our lives are never altogether gone- that death is not oblivion, but a state in which people can finally tell the truth because the truth no longer hurts- and that love will conquer all--given enough time.

About Laurence Shames

Laurence Shames has been a New York City taxi driver, lounge singer, furniture mover, lifeguard, dishwasher, gym teacher, and shoe salesman. Having failed to distinguish himself in any of those professions, he turned to writing full-time in 1976 and has not done an honest day's work since. His basic laziness notwithstanding, Shames has published more than twenty books and hundreds of magazine articles and essays. Best known for his critically acclaimed series of Key West novels, he has also authored non-fiction and enjoyed considerable though largely secret success as a collaborator and ghostwriter. Shames has penned four New York Times bestsellers. These have appeared on four different lists, under four different names, none of them his own. This might be a record. From 1999 to 2013, Shames lived in Southern California and pretended to be in the movie business. THE ANGELS' SHARE is the first novel he has set on the West Coast. He currently divides his year between Asheville, NC and Naples, FL. For more information, please visit http: //www.laurenceshames.com
