Publisher's Summary

The small town of Morgan Hill, Tennessee, is turned upside down in 1947 when the Turners become the only black family ever to move into the area. Nine-year-old Jane Gable first lays eyes on young Milo Turner the day that her trouble-making, alcoholic father is buried in the Morgan Hill cemetery. The Turners are the first black family ever to move into the area, and while their presence challenges the comfort of many in the small, tight-knit community, Jane and her brother, John, have found new friends.
Then tragedy strikes the Turner household, and the Gable family is asked to make a decision that could rip their world apart. One path might open up a whole new world and bring them closer than ever. Or it might bring them nothing but trouble and heartache. On their journey, Jane discovers that angels are all around us, every day, in the most extraordinary - and ordinary - ways.
The Angels of Morgan Hill is filled with unforgettable characters who show us the ways and means of the heart and prove that even in the darkest hours, we are never truly alone.

A touching story with a powerful message

Donna VanLiere is so skilled at bringing her characters to life. Her books are filled with messages of love, forgiveness and the goodness that can rise out of the worst of circumstances. The simplicity of life in post WWII Tennessee mixed with the cruelty of prejudice and ignorance are all blended into this heartfelt story. You will love it!

A "makes you feel good" Book

If you could sum up The Angels of Morgan Hill in three words, what would they be?

Sorry it ended.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them. But if I had to choose one it would be Henry. With Henry, chivalry is alive and well.

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to choose.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Has it all. A perfect escape.

Any additional comments?

You laugh, you cry, you listen and listen and listen!!. When I should have shut off the car and exit, I found myself sitting there listening, a true page turner. As with all her works, this is a "feel good ending" book. Nothing to bring you down. Much food for thought, you walk away a better you. The added bonus is Ms VanLiere as the storyteller. Nothing better than an author narrating their own book, truly gives the story heart. I loved it! My only regret was listening to "The Good Dream" first, since many of the characters in this book are in TGD. But TAMH is where you really get to know most of them. I just think it would have made TGD that much more enjoyable. Yes, I loved that one too! Donna VanLiere is now my all time favorite author!
