Miss Garnet’s Angel
by Salley Vickers
In BriefElderly spinster Julia Garnet falls in love with Venice, and a charming but sinister Italian. The experience releases long-repressed emotions, challenges her atheism, opens her eyes to a world beyond the senses and catches her up in the age-old battle between good and evil.
Why you should read itIf you see human life as part of 'the Vast', and individual consciousness as a tiny island in an infinite sea of psychic life, you will appreciate the richness of this book, and you will love it. If not, read it anyway: like Julia Garnet, you may change your mind.
