Henry Bright has newly returned to West Virginia from the battlefields of the First World War. Grief-stricken by the death of his young wife and unsure of how to care for the infant son she left behind, Bright is soon confronted by the destruction of the only home he's ever known. His hopes for safety rest with the angel who has followed him to Appalachia from the trenches of France and who now promises to protect him and his son. Haunted by the abiding nightmare of his experiences in the war and shadowed by his dead wife's father, the Colonel, and his two brutal sons, Bright-along with his newborn-makes his way through a ravaged landscape toward an uncertain salvation.

Neverhome - because they both deal with war and the effects of war.
Henry...and the horse.
When angels are among us.
I really enjoyed the story because it's a bit different. The narration was excellent; really gave the characters life. I don't think I would have enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed listening to it.
