9780865340718: Angels in Tesuque: A Novel

On Christmas Eve, snow falls softly on the small adobe house perched in a field on the edge of the pueblo. Young Ben Touchstone, a half-breed, feels a tear snake past his cheekbone to his mouth. Born with pale skin, straw colored hair and cobalt eyes, his sad expression is reflected in the window. Rejected by the pueblo, he also feels the pain of knowing he is regarded as an oddity by anglos. Even the tourists on the plaza in Santa Fe cast curious glances. Ben feels forsaken in a strange limbo between the cultures. That night, in the mysterious chapel at Chimayo, he is startled and bewildered by the majestic appearance of his angel who promises Ben she will intervene and counsel him at every crossroad of his life. But does she? For many years Ben is puzzled by her absence. Will he be able to discern whether people in his life have been sent by the angel, or are they dark forces dispatched by some demonic being? Moving between the abject poverty of Tesuque pueblo and the wealthy social life of Santa Fe, Ben is constantly confronted with choices, choices he alone must make. Only in the final pages of the novel does Ben comprehend the significance and fulfillment of the angel's mysterious promises made thirty years earlier in the chapel at Chimayo.

About the Author:

Michael Glasco is a native of Dallas, Texas, and received his undergraduate degree in journalism and his masters degree from Southern Methodist University where he taught photography and film. He has also been a commercial photographer with assignments throughout the United States, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. This is his first published novel.

Review:

''First time novelist Michael Glasco has given us an intriguing, poignant story that kept me reading well into the night, leaving me with a lump in my throat that lingered for days. A young, half Anglo-half Indian boy, Ben Touchstone, receives a message from an angel in a mysterious chapel on Christmas Eve that haunts him for years to come. We experience his rise from poverty in Tesuque Pueblo to the affluent socialites of Santa Fe and Dallas, and the moral choices he faces, presented to him from those who are drawn to him. In an exciting conclusion, Ben finally understands the meaning of the angelic message given to him in the chapel thirty years earlier. Richly drawn characters are throughout. There is Kate, Ben's proud and kind mother with an ailing heart, Henry, his seriously troubled brother, Ojo, his drunken and abusive father, Two Crows, an Indian who saves his life, Nando, a mysterious gardener, and many others who are brought to life by simple but earthy dialogue that cuts straight to the heart. The author succeeds in weaving a colorful tale filled with Native American background and flavor. As Ben Touchstone discovered, angels can come to us in unexpected and mysterious ways. When I asked the author how he came to write this novel, he replied that the idea came to him one Christmas morning in Santa Fe. It was snowing, and 'the idea came to me as suddenly and mysteriously as that unexpected snowfall.' Angels in Tesuque is much more than an idea. It is a beautiful gift from the angels and from a talented writer who knows how to touch the heart.'' --Unita Belk, ANGEL TIMES MAGAZINE

''Glasco keeps his sensitive hero on the right track through costly lessons.'' --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
