The Third Angel by Alice Hoffman

The Third Angel is three stories that are eventually tied together, all set in the Lion Park Hotel in London. In the first story, Maddy Heller comes to London to attend her sister's wedding in 1999 and falls for her sister's fiancé, Paul. Her behavior threatens to undo everything. The second story, set in 1996, tells of Frieda (Paul's mother) who falls for a bad boy rock star staying at the hotel, who is already engaged to someone else. The third story, set in 1952, tells of Maddy's mother, Lucy, when she was 12 and dreadfully unhappy while coming to London for her stepmother's sister's wedding. The ghost that haunts the hotel figures in all three stories. The Third Angel has received positive reviews with the Rocky Mountain News saying, "The characters in The Third Angel make gripping, tragic mistakes in the face of love and loss. But in the end, in her own unique way, Hoffman offers them the redemptive power of forgiveness. Her bewitching style and mysterious subject matter culminate in a powerful, dreamy novel."
