The Angel Connection (Historical Fiction, Romance, Women’s Fiction) Get swept away in this epic riveting love story. Set in mystical Bucks County Pennsylvania, birthplace of the Pennsylvania Impressionist movement, The Angel Connection reveals the story of two women in two worlds, hurtling through time toward the inevitable collision of their twin destinies. In the vein of The French Lieutenant’s Woman and Outlander, The Angel Connection deftly combines historical and contemporary fiction to create a timeless love story told by two female protagonists born a century apart but mysteriously linked by long held secrets. In 1996 television journalist Morgan Reed is suddenly unemployed after a humiliating and very public divorce. Her estranged son Chad won’t return calls. Escaping Philadelphia for the obscurity of a remote country village, she impulsively moves into the old Rectory. Soon unsettling paranormal events lead Morgan to believe that the house is haunted. When her charming but enigmatic neighbor Victor Cenzo invites her to collaborate on a documentary about the local painters of the Impressionist era, the two are drawn into a passionate but disquieting affair. Victor is a dance away lover. Soon her resentful son is back in the picture creating a tense triangle in which Morgan’s loyalties are severely tested. With the start of filming, pieces of a century old mystery are illuminated and smoldering karmic embers ignite. And in a parallel universe ... In 1895 Evangeline Laury, the beautiful restless wife of a zealot preacher is torn between her role as obedient wife and mother and her birthright as a gifted artist. When she is drawn into a forbidden affair with a charismatic local Impressionist painter, unspeakable tragedy results, leaving her a virtual prisoner in the Rectory. Through courage and cunning she ultimately seizes the destiny that was hers from the beginning. Morgan and Evangeline, two women separated by a century, both struggle to fulfill their needs for creative expression, true love and familial duty. Bound together by universal forces beyond their control the two women’s pasts meld into the present, fanning the fires of a shuddering retribution. Where does one story end and the other begin?

About the Author:

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Judith Anne Barton is a novelist, actress, playwright and award-winning television journalist. The Angel Connection is her latest novel. After a successful career in broadcast journalism in Philadelphia that spanned over a decade, Barton moved to Bucks County PA where she worked with her mentor, the late JP Miller, author of the classic The Days of Wine and Roses. Her first play Opening Night received its world premiere at Philadelphia’s Lantern Theatre Company, and was named a finalist in the Sundance Film Lab competition. Barton now resides in Los Angeles where she also pursues an acting career in film and television. Her sons, William Wheeler (The Reluctant Fundamentalist, The Hoax) and Thomas Wheeler (Puss in Boots, Puss in Boots II) are screenwriters.

From Kirkus Reviews:

In this romantic thriller, mysterious convergences link two lives separated by 100 years.

In 1996, after her reputation, marriage, career as a TV journalist and relationship with her adult son, Chad, are trashed, Morgan Reed starts over in Milltown, Pa., a village in beautiful Bucks County. She feels drawn there, particularly to the 200-year-old former rectory that she buys. In 1895, Evangeline Laury, minister’s wife and mother to a small boy, feels stifled in provincial Milltown. She misses the cultured life she’d led in Philadelphia and her painting, especially when she learns that a local American impressionist, the charismatic Daniel Duvall, is giving lessons. As Morgan, with the help of her handsome but mercurial neighbor Victor, works on a documentary about 1895 Milltown, she uncovers more spooky parallels between her life and Evangeline’s. Both women, desperate for love and connection, are guiltily caught between competing attractions and responsibilities, whether for a husband, lover, child or work, and both women will experience the tragic death of someone close. In her debut novel, Barton writes lush descriptions of beauty and desire, with interesting historical details, many of which seem borrowed from real-life American impressionist painter Daniel Garber and his Bucks County studio at Cuttalossa Farm. (Black-and-white historical photos in the book go uncredited.) Though the narrative works to account for Morgan’s needy self-pity and Evangeline’s blind desire, readers might feel less sympathy than the writer intends, especially since other characters pay the ultimate price for the women’s culpability. In particular, deeply emotional Evangeline’s self-punishing guilt becomes internal melodrama. When Victor very reasonably objects to involving sullen, hard-drinking Chad on the documentary project, it’s a welcome moment of sensibleness: “It is not my problem to save your son.”

Emotional, doom-tinged and spooky, with two deeply flawed heroines.
