9780578095356: Angel

Thirteen year old Angel Bishop is fed up with all the unanswered questions about her life, like why did her daddy run off when she was just a baby? And why has her Aunt Patsy, the only family member she feels she can talk to, been locked up in a place for crazy people all these years? It seems to Angel like her family fell apart right after she was born, which makes her wonder what her coming along had to do with it. Growing up with her mother, Ruth, who is often distant and preoccupied, and her Bible-thumping grandmother, Naomi, Angel is certain there's more to the story than she's been told. When her father, Calvin, telephones out of the blue one evening and says he's coming home for Thanksgiving, Angel thinks her dream of having a normal family is finally going to come true. Instead, she finds herself at the center of a dangerous scenario, threatened by secrets far beyond her understanding. Set in a small Appalachian town in the early 1970's, ANGEL is the compelling story of an innocent girl as the unwitting link between the two generations of her family's dark and unresolved past.

Review:

"A winsome debut....Kingsley's eloquent prose breathes life into Angel's trials and tribulations."   Kirkus Reviews

"Mary Kingsley's ANGEL is a witty and well-written tale about a feisty young woman's coming-of-age in East Tennessee in the 1970's...Intrigued by the plot and admiring the prose, I read this book all in one sitting, unable to put it down."
-Lisa Alther, Bestselling author of Kinflicks, Blood Feud and Washed in the Blood
