9780099474739: Angel's Crest

On a crisp winter morning just before the start of deer season, Ethan and his three-year-old son Nate set off together to discover the beauties of the forest. As he parks the car, Ethan sports a pair of magnificent bucks, and, eager to take a closer look, leaves Nate asleep in the car seat, a brief, impulsive decision any parent might make. When he returns only a few minutes later, the door of the truck is open and Nate is nowhere to be seen. Ethan and other members of the community search for the missing three-year old, their fears rising as an unexpected blizzard blankets the woods. Imbued with extraordinary emotional power, Angel's Crest, explores the consequences of Ethan's act on his own life and on the people around him. Leslie Schwartz creates a rich cast of characters, a community of vibrant and unforgettable people whose reactions to the tragedy reflect the complexities of human emotions, and who are all moved by the need to somehow make sense of the inexplicable.

From the Inside Flap:

Living in a small town in the mountains of California, Ethan Denton is a lucky man. Most things have gone his way, and being granted full custody of Nate, his young son, has given him a near-perfect life. On a crisp winter morning just before the start of deer season, Ethan and Nate set off together to discover the beauties of the forest. As he parks the truck, Ethan spots a pair of magnificent bucks and, eager to take a closer look, leaves Nate asleep in the car seat, a brief, impulsive decision any parent might make. When he returns only a few minutes later, the door of the truck is open and Nate is nowhere to be seen. Ethan and other members of the community search for the missing three-year-old, their fears rising as an unexpected blizzard blankets the woods.

Imbued with extraordinary literary and emotional power, ANGELS CREST explores the consequences of Ethan?s act on his own life and on the people around him. Leslie Schwartz creates a rich cast of characters, a community of vibrant and unforgettable people whose reactions to the tragedy reflect the complexities of human emotions: Ethan?s ex-wife and ex-best friend, who must deal with their own wounds; an older Jewish judge, whose concern and involvement is colored by recent problems with his own son; a middle-aged lesbian couple, one of whom is a beekeeper; and a blind minister, all moved by the need to somehow make sense of the inexplicable.

Like A Map of the World and The Lovely Bones, ANGELS CREST is a beautifully wrought work, a seamless blend of dramatic suspense and emotional truth. Few readers will leave the town of Angels Crest unmoved.
