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.

    Story
    "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!

    I love audiobooks. I have 505 Audible books and the number continues to grow. I enjoy stories that are set below the Mason Dixon Line and narrated by a good southern voice. I also enjoy mysteries and historical fiction. There is not much that I will not read but I have finally learned to put down a book that I do not enjoy. I often listen to a book just because I like the narrator and will not finish one if I find the narrator irritating.

    "Touched My Heart"
    What did you like best about this story?

    This book touched so many emotions. I loved the story. I hated some characters. I laughed out loud. I cried-happy and sad tears. This is the second Donna VanLiere book that I have read and I will buy another soon.
