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 Falls cemetery.
When the Turners begin work as sharecroppers on a local tobacco farm, their presence challenges the comfort of many in the close-knit town and Jane leans heavily on her best friend, 53-year-old general store owner Henry Walker, for guidance. Then tragedy strikes the Turner household: Jane, her mother Fran (already pregnant with another mouth to feed), and younger brother John find themselves torn between the people they’ve lived with all their lives and a dying request from 6-year-old Milo Turner’s mother that nearly rips their world apart.
The Angels of Morgan Hill is Donna VanLiere at her inspiring and heartwarming best, in an audiobook that’s ultimately about the mysteries of faith, the hope of belonging, and the dream of family.

From Donna VanLiere--the "New York Times "bestselling author of the beloved "Christmas Hope" series--comes a novel of faith and destiny that no reader will soon forget
FAMILY BY BIRTH
It's 1947. Nine-year-old Jane Gable first lays eyes on young Milo Turner the day that her alcoholic father is buried. The Turners are the first black family ever to live in Morgan Hill, and Jane can't understand why some people are bitter.
FAMILY BY HEART
When tragedy strikes the Turner household, the Gables are asked to make a decision that could rip their family apart. One path might open up a whole new world to them and bring them closer than ever. The other might bring them nothing but trouble and heartache. As Jane struggles to make sense of the changes in her community, she will soon learn about the angels who surround her, every day, in the most extraordinary--and ordinary--ways.
"VanLiere uses humor, memories of growing up Southern, and touching moments of family unity to enrich her story of overcoming racism and poverty."--"Publishers Weekly"
