Summary
Jamie Lane is a big-time crooner--a bit like Frank Sinatra, a bit like Yanni. He's made millions, but he staggers from concert to concert joylessly. He's burned out. W hen his mother, afflicted both with Alzheimer's and emphysema, dies, Jamie cuts his locks, takes a name from a character in the film Roman Holiday, and returns to his mother's hometown in Oregon. There he stays in a monastery and works at a bakery, and when informed of problems in the town that money can solve, he plays angel. He also falls in love with a young Christian teacher, Anne Stewart, who is slowly coming to her feet after a car crash left her with brain damage. But eventually Jamie's secret is found out, and he must return to being famous. Or must he?
Summary
A family tragedy prompts celebrity Jamie D. Lane to assume a new identity and head to the Pacific Northwest incognito, where he meets Anne Stewart, a teacher and former track star grappling with the bitterness and devastating effects of a head injury
