Love Can Guide You From Beyond If You Listen With Your Heart “Under Margret's Wing” is a coming of age novella by St. Augustine, Florida, author Audrey Frank. A perfect read for young adults and adults who are young at heart. It is a story that will stay with you long after you finish it and make you want to tighten the bonds with your loved ones. Margret Helms was an old spinster who liked her privacy and was comfortable with her quiet life. A knock on her door was about to change everything around her, including her crusty attitude. “Aunt Maggie?” A pregnant teenage girl greeted her. No one had called her Maggie except for the sister she lost touch with years ago. “And you are?” “Annie Duggin. I'm your great-niece.” So begins a relationship that will span space and time between the two.
Margret Helms felt a strange sensation. She’d been dead for years. A quick death at eighty-five. She had returned for awhile to help Annie. Now she felt herself being pulled back, but to what? This could only mean trouble. Annie? And so starts the journey back to St. Augustine, Florida and her beloved great-niece, Annie. Danger and troubles surround Annie and her friends. Can Margret help with it all?
Look for the final in the trilogy late spring early summer.
