BUCKINGHAM, Pa. - Jan. 16, 2022 - PRLog -- Buckingham author and playwright, Lisa DeAngelis, has authored a new book described as a dark, coming-of-age tale. Published by Regal House Publishing, "Angels Unaware" is a 1930s Depression-era tale set in the mining town of Galen, Pennsylvania and a dilapidated hotel that attracts misfit wayfarers instead of actual paying guests.

Trying to keep her family fed and a roof over their heads, the central character of "Angels Unaware" is Darcy Willickers, a plain girl who lives with her two sisters and unusual mother named Jewel. Together they operate the Hospitality Inn, a hotel that accommodates a string of unusual borders. Darcy's challenges are many and include fending off the local minister's son, who seems to have dark designs of his own. When a handsome Italian immigrant, Luca D'Angeli, comes to town with his father from Naples, Italy, Darcy and Luca find themselves drawn to one another. Luca has no idea that loving Darcy, with her numerous secrets of past murder, violence, and retribution, may well destroy them both.

Written by Lisa DeAngelis, a resident of Buckingham, Pa., "Angels Unaware" marks DeAngelis' first published work of historical fiction. Also an accomplished playwright, she has had numerous successes prior to entering the publishing world.  DeAngelis was a winner of the 2019 Phillips' Mill Emerging Playwrights Competition and the Philadelphia Dramatists Guild Zoom Playfest. Prior to those accolades, she was a winner of the Philadelphia Film Office's Shoot in Philadelphia contest and recipient of Best Comedy Screenplay two years running at the Houston International Film Festival for "The Inconvenience of Death and Friendship" and "In The Secret City." In addition to writing, DeAngelis works as an English teacher at an adjudicated facility for juvenile offenders.

"Angels Unaware," written by Lisa DeAngelis, is available in print and for Kindle on amazon.com and via the Regal House Publishing website at https://www.regalhousepublishing.com/product/angels-unaware/
