About The Book

Sex, love, and forgiveness—can they coexist, and can romance author Sarah write them into her life?

Although bestselling author Sarah O’Malley is sure her next erotic-romance novel will be another hit, she finds it near to impossible to replicate the same results in her personal life. At forty-five years old, Sarah now finds herself divorced and a single mother of two. Sarah journeys back to her childhood home to nurse her mother who is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and she inevitably encounters the ghosts of her past—the death of a child, its devastating effect on family relations, youthful sexual exploration, and an unplanned pregnancy.

However, the haunts of the past open up a whole new world to Sarah as she learns to forgive the traumas that had happened before. Amid a great awakening, Sarah also comes to terms with being a sexually active middle-aged woman, and begins to accept sex again, even in the most inappropriate but titillating circumstances. As she unlocks her own physical desires, she also stumbles upon a heavy secret that her mother had been hiding from her for the past fifty years. This trip might prove to be a better story than anything Sarah could have possibly hoped to write.

“In When Angels Cry, Jennifer Edwards has drawn from her own unique life to create a heroine who navigates the nuances of modern relationships as a professional woman, lover, mother, and daughter. Her novel, which had to be taken into the bathtub because I couldn’t it put down, is sexy, funny, and emotionally resonant—just like the author herself.” —Tracy Nelson, actress
