Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A magical tale of love and redemption that is as wonderfully written as it is captivating . . . Angels earns its wings."

-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Margaret Quinn lives alone, quietly mourning the disappearance of her only child, who fled ten years earlier to join a radical student group known as the Angels of Destruction.

On a cold winters night, a nine-year-old girl arrives on Margarets doorstep, claiming to be an orphan with no place to go. This child beguiles Margaret, and together they hatch a plan to pass her off as her newly found granddaughter, Norah Quinn.

Their conspiracy is made vulnerable by Norahs magical revelations to the children of the town, and by a lone figure shadowing the girl, who threatens to reveal the childs true identity and purpose. Who are these strangers really? And what is their connection to the past, the Angels, and Margarets long-missing daughter?

Synopsis:

Fused with spectral imagery and magnetic characters, Donohue's ethereal foray into the unexpected consequences of love, impenetrable depths of loss, and infinite possibilities of faith is a chilling yet affirmative experience.--"Booklist."
