Publisher's Summary

Longing to return to beer halls and boys, a teenager gives birth to a daughter during the Great Depression but shows the ultimate lack of maternal instinct when her baby is discovered to be missing. Though she claims that a nurse abducted the newborn, the infant, and the anonymous nurse are never seen again. In Minneapolis, Lorene Hermanson is raised on discipline and Christian morality. But as a young married woman, Lorene's life collides with that of the missing baby when she learns her mother's secret: 30 years earlier, her mother saved Lorene from teenagers and a wealthy family who were determined to drown the baby. Heartbroken to learn her own birth story, Lorene struggles with the reality. The true story of one woman's anguish learning that life isn't what it appears to be, Sleep with Angels is a lifelong journey about the true beauty of maternal love, holding onto faith and the precious gift of life. It is a rare cross between true crime and inspiration.

Engaging Read and Listen

Would you listen to Sleep with Angels again? Why?

This is a difficult but redemptive story of the author's discovery of new layers of her identity. Troubling, yet inspiring! I typically listen to audible books while in my car going here and there on daily tasks and errands. I was so thoroughly engaged by the story and narration I listened at home and office.
