The Third Angel is a complex story of three women in love with the wrong men.
In the first chapter we read about Madeleine Heller, who has a secret relationship with her sisters seriously ill fiance. In the second chapter the main character is Frida, who becomes the muse of an addicted and ill rock-star. And in the third chapter we read about Bryn Evans, who is going to marry soon, while she still is secretly in love with her ex-husband. The spill of the novel is Lucy Green, who has seen a terrible accident happen when she was twelve years old, and she blames herself for letting it happen. The lives of all the women in this book connect all in a way to each other. This all takes place in different times in London’s King’s Road, Knightsbridge, and Kensington. The Third Angel is a good book in my opinion. But I think it could have been better. I missed some action in the book and that made it sometimes a bit slow to read. Besides that it is a nice book to read about different women in different times.You Review is written by real people, like you.
