Publisher Description

Michael Hiebert’s remarkable debut novel tells the riveting story of a small southern town haunted by tragedy, one brave woman’s struggle to put a troubling mystery to rest—and its impact on the sensitive boy who comes of age in the midst of it all.

Abe Teal wasn’t even born when Ruby Mae Vickers went missing twelve years ago. Few people in Alvin, Alabama, talk about the months spent looking for her, or about how Ruby Mae’s lifeless body was finally found beneath a willow tree. Even Abe’s mom, Leah, Alvin’s only detective, has avoided the subject. But now, another girl is missing.

Fourteen-year-old Mary Ann Dailey took the bus home from school as usual, then simply vanished. Townsfolk comb the dense forests and swampy creeks to no avail. Days later Tiffany Michelle Yates disappears. Abe saw her only hours before, holding an ice cream cone and wearing a pink dress.

Observant and smart, Abe watches his mother battle small-town bureaucracy and old resentments, desperate to find both girls and quietly frantic for her own children’s safety. As the search takes on a terrifying urgency, Abe traverses the shifting ground between innocence and hard-won understanding, eager to know and yet fearing what will be revealed.

Dream with Little Angels is by turns lyrical, heartbreaking, and shocking—a brilliantly plotted novel of literary suspense and of the dark shadows, painful secrets, and uncompromising courage in one small town.

“Gorgeous prose and some thoughtful characterizations, with attention given to theme and setting…Michael Hiebert’s debut delivers…a breathless, will-they-get-there-in-time affair, with a heartbreaking resolution. Hiebert’s skill at character and storytelling should take him a long way.”

— Mystery Scene 


  • “One of the best books I’ve read in a long, long while.”

    — Lisa Jackson, New York Times bestselling author
  • “A masterful coming-of-age gem.”

    — Deborah Crombie, New York Times bestselling author
  • “There’s something mesmerizing about Hiebert’s storytelling voice, low-pitched and lightly musical.”

    — New York Times Book Review
  • “Hiebert’s first novel courts comparison to the classic To Kill a Mockingbird…In Hiebert’s sure hands, psychological insight and restrained lyricism combine to create a coming-of-age tale as devastating as it is indelible.”

    — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “A trip to the dark side of a town much like Mayberry, filled with that elusive quality of childhood and the aura of safety that often settles, unjustifiably, over rural small towns in the South”

    — Carolyn Haines, 2010 recipient of the Harper Lee Award
