The Rosewood Casket by Sharyn McCrumb

Description: Randall Stargill lies dying on his southern Appalachian farm, and his four sons have come home to build him a coffin from the cache of rosewood he has hoarded for the special purpose. Meanwhile, mountain wisewoman Nora Bonesteel, Randall’s sweetheart of long ago, prepares another box for his burial—a small box containing human bones…

A story containing angels. Nice series this, what with the local folklore and indiosyncratic inhabitants.
