Publisher's Summary

After the Johnson family learns the youngest daughter is pregnant and unwed, they devise an elaborate plan to keep it a secret from the outside world. Part of that plan includes a lavish lie which is designed to make the scheme seem more believable. Once the child was born, however, this lie would not only come true, but change the lives of every member of the family.

Interesting Novella

The Angel Years is the story of three sisters in a rural community in the 50s. The youngest daughter becomes pregnant, and it's necessary to hide the pregnancy. When the child is born, it's evident she's special.

I've read a few books by this author, and his typical characters are salt of the earth people, characters we'd meet in our day to day lives. I always enjoy the way the author brings the setting and era to life, especially for someone like me who never experienced it personally. The characters in this book are compelling, and you want to cheer for them or shake them, depending on who they are. I finished the story in one sitting and I'd recommend it to others.

The narration was well done, with the perfect accent for the characters. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

The Angel Years

I have listened to quite a few of John Isaac Jones’s audiobooks, and I am never disappointed. His stories are so well written, I feel like I am right there watching everything happen. The Angel Years is no exception.

Not only is his writing exquisite, but Mr. Jones also finds the perfect narrator for each of his stories. Susan Marlowe’s performance definitely added to my enjoyment.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.
