Over a decade ago, when her daughter was killed in an automobile accident Sharpe faced down the most difficult challenge of her life. She was determined not to just merely survive, but to live; to honor the life of her beloved daughter, her twins, her husband and the rest of the rich life she had created before the tragedy. Blessed with an inherently positive outlook, these trying times were strengthened by influences from the late Norman Vincent Peale to the children's book character, Wilbur the pig. For Sharpe ministers of spirit and guidance took the form of angels. Sharpe's openness to change led her to write her first novel, The Angel's Daughter. The story that takes place in the fictitious town of Mystic Bay, California, encompasses all Sharpe's attitudes about goodness, healing and moving on.
