"Mandie and The Angel's Secret" by Lois Gladys Leppard

About this book:

  “The summer of 1901 had been a great adventure for Mandie and Celia as they traveled through Europe with Jonathan, Mrs. Taft, Senator Morton, and Uncle Ned. But Mandie's grandmother had suddenly decided to cut the trip short while they were in Ireland. Through the tears of saying goodbye to Jonathan, Mandie couldn't help but wonder why they needed to go home so soon.
  No one tells Mandie why they're returning to America or of the mystery involved. But she returns home to a house full of strangers. Mandie must try to solve the mystery who are these people from her past? What of the night appearance of the angel in Mandie's room?”

My personal Rating-
Not my favorite Mandie book, but there is quite a bit of Spiritual Content which is, of course, good! ;)
