Reader's Exchange: She's looking for 'A Book of Angels'

It is so frustrating when you lend out a treasured possession and never get it back. That is what happened to Carm in Zephyrhills. She let someone borrow A Book of Angels by Sophy Burnham, they never returned it, and now she cannot find the book anywhere! Carm is trying to replace the book, which she describes as having a goldish colored cover and which would have been published around 1990. If you have a copy that you are willing to part with, please give Carm a call at (813) 788-2305.
