Margaret Quinn lives alone, quietly mourning the disappearance of her only child, who fled ten years earlier to join a radical student group known as the Angels of Destruction.

On a cold winter’s night, a nine-year-old girl arrives on Margaret’s doorstep, claiming to be an orphan with no place to go. This child beguiles Margaret, and together they hatch a plan to pass her off as her newly found granddaughter, Norah Quinn.

Their conspiracy is made vulnerable by Norah’s magical revelations to the children of the town, and by a lone figure shadowing the girl, who threatens to reveal the child’s true identity and purpose. Who are these strangers really? And what is their connection to the past, the Angels, and Margaret’s long-missing daughter?

    " Beautifully written. I would not say that this was a "page-turner", but rather, a reflective, languorous piece. "

    " This well-written book walked the fine line between fantasy and reality for most of the book. Redemption and reconcilliation are the two major themes. Towards the end, the book loses its balance and includes unnecessary theatrics by the character Norah. Still, overall a good book with a strong ending. "

    " Interesting and compelling, but in the end I felt it was left unresolved and too "mysterious." I thought the author could have pushed harder and committed to a vision of what was really going on with all of the potential angels in his book. I guess I just like concrete endings! But, I felt it was well written and I liked the idea that angels move around us all the time, in different forms. "

    " I think that after this book, I might be satisfied with knowing that Keith Donohue is not an author for me. Like his first book, The Stolen Child A Novel, Angels of Destruction left me cold. It's technically well-written, but it didn't really do anything for me. I wasn't compelled to pick it up when I had some free time, and I was only too glad to put it down to go to bed. It went exactly where I expected it to go - nothing was surprising or touching, and I didn't feel anything for any of the characters. It wasn't bad by any means, which is why it gets three stars instead of two, but I don't think I will be revisiting the author. "
