Late at night, while her sisters and Tanta Rose sleep, Hannah Gold sees angels. She sees them soaring over the Boston streets in their shimmering robes, with eyes shining and wings outstretched. The angels inspire Hanna, for it is 1918, and her mother and father are fighting the Great War in Europe. But Boston is fighting a war of its own. A devastating epidemic of influenza is sweeping through the town, killing nearly everyone in its path. Overwhelmed, Hannah aimlessly wanders the streets until a mysterious girl leads her onto a train. When Hannah awakens much later, she is ill, in a strange place, and the girl is gone. It will take the remarkable kindness of a stranger to help Hannah fight her sickness and somehow find her family again--if they're alive. Newbery Award-winner Karen Hesse weaves a wondrous, sensitive tale of one girl's involvement with both earthly and heavenly angels. Suzanne Toren's lyrical narration captures both the desperation and hopefulness of a family's fight to survive. Download and start listening now!

    " Have you ever seen an angel? This girl living in Boston during the influenza epidemic that killed over 20 million people across the world thinks she can see them. Since I love reading historical fiction this book was a good one for me. It has a happy ending too. "

    " This book took me a year and three months to read. It's a shame because I think I probably forgot some of the details over the course of a year...it was deep, well-written, symbolic...I think the symbolism and the relationships between the characters was my favorite part of the book. It's not a book that is really exciting, but it left me reflecting a lot on the shortness of life, on how we don't appreciate things while we're in the moment, but then when the moment is gone, we miss the moment we didn't appreciate while it lasted. (I'm probably a dork and maybe other people don't think this deeply!) "

    " I liked this book very much. It is a wonderful thing to help people see that there are always two sides to any conflict. I gave it four stars only because the sections about the angels are a little strange and confusing. "
