Lotus Blossom Lane by Annie Rose Welch

Life after Yuma was blissful for Layla and Michael. After the turmoil of the old Red Dirt Road, their journey seemed to be moving them in the right direction, leading them to Ireland, Michael’s birthplace, where history runs deep and secrets run even deeper. As the road to happily-ever-after leads them down Lotus Blossom Lane, years of entombed history starts to emerge, changing the course of their lives forever. And the person waiting for them at the end of Lotus Blossom Lane, one of the biggest stars in the world, will bring them to the Crossroads of the Saving Angels Series.

Lotus Blossom Lane
Book 3 - Saving Angels
by Annie Rose Welch

Layla and Michael defeated that which bedeviled them in Red Dirt Road (Saving Angels, book 2). In the aftermath of their battle they promised to love one another forever and to make vows of that eternal love. That is where Lotus Blossom Lane begins and just like a wedding is merely the beginning of the rest of their life together, so too is it simply the beginning of this story. 

The beauty of the love that Layla and her saving angel Michael share continues to shine like a beacon through this story – from the very first page to the final word. The struggles they have and the challenges they face in this third book of the series are almost mirror images to the experiences that Michael’s grandfather and grandmother went through decades ago. Their story, Daniel and Eliska’s, has been kept secret; the truth of their tragic tale held inside by the handful that knew it so well that not even their own family, the son they both loved nor his son, knew of it.

Then along came Layla and because she was new to the family and because she was curious about Michael’s family history, she was open to learning to the truth. And because of her own nature, her own past experiences, and because of the new strengths she’d come to realize she possessed, she was determined to know that truth and deeply touched by it. Little did she know how greatly all of their lives could be changed by learning of the past. Nor could she have guessed how deeply the people she and Michael meet along the way would affect their futures.

Lotus Blossom Lane is another emotional stunner by Annie Rose Welch. So far, the books of the Saving Angels series have all contained immense depth and color, and such striking feeling that you simply can’t help but be pulled in. With the first word, the first phrase I was hooked and for hours at a time I could do nothing but read. I cried and I laughed, and while the story of Daniel and Eliska’s love was heartrending, the way it made the depth of Layla and Michael’s relationship grow was simply beautiful.

Through it all we start to see the way all the threads of these stories will come together, how the characters that we’ve come to love will shape their own futures, and most of all, how the loves they find will enrich their souls and give their hearts the strength they’ll need to face whatever may come. And at the end of this story, when I flip the last page and find only a blank sheet, I can only wonder one thing… What happens next?
