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.

    " This post WWII deep South prejudice book was a quick read. It was a great story. Fiction based on fact. The struggles of the mother who had to be the mom and the dad for the kids, even before the dad died at the beginning. He was a drunk, and everyone struggled with it long after his death.. It has a happy ending though! Through the eyes of children people are all the same. that was the basic concept that I got. "

    " I wish they had one more star between 4 & 5. I don't give many "it was amazing" ratings but this comes pretty close. I loved reading from the young girl's point of view and hearing her speak of her relationships with the other characters. I don't generally get emotional when reading books, but this one brought a few tears, a most excellent read. "
