The mountain always looked dark, but the older I got that year, the darker it got. I tried to listen for the music of life that Lacy said is always there if your heart's ready to hear it, but all I heard was quiet.

Growing up in Virginia's Allegheny Mountains, 11-year-old Charlie York lives at the foot of an endless peak called Angel's Rest, a place his momma told him angels rested before coming down to help folks. In 1967 his town was a poor boy's paradise...until a shotgun blast killed Charlie's father and put his mother on trial for murder.

For mysterious reasons, his mother entrusts his care to an old black man named Lacy Albert Coe. Lacy tells simple stories about the good and the bad that compose life's sweetest music. But when Hollis Thrasher, a reclusive Korean War veteran, is linked to his father's death and Lacy is victimized by hate crimes, Charlie hears only silence. It's not until Charlie embarks on a dangerous midnight journey pitting him against his darkest fears that he finally hears his own song playing out.

In this remarkable debut, Charles Davis weaves together an unforgettable melody of a mother's love, a hero's return to the living, and a boy who discovers angels do exist.

    " A good story told from a child's point of view, filled with all of the inherent confusion, assumption/misunderstanding and naivete. A mystery from the beginning, the story slowly unfolds, and is not overly predictable. A very enjoyable read. "

    " In his debut novel, Charles Davis weaves a beautiful tale of life, death, prejudice, friendship and love told through the eyes of eleven-year-old Charlie. His mother is on trial for the murder of his father, and Charlie is left in the care of a wise old black man who knows more than he cares to tell about the incident. As Charlie tries to cope with his life tumbling down around him, rumors begin about the reclusive war veteran who may be involved, and racial incidents occur against Charlie's caretaker. It is up to Charlie to try and figure out what happened that day and why he can't remember. "

    " This is about a young boy who is able to force out of his memory a very traumatic event. The power of the mind. A reminder that love comes from unexpected people, your heart simply has to be open to it. "
