9780099526773: Angels of Destruction

"Angels of Destruction" is the mesmerising story of Norah, a nine-year-old girl who seems to materialise out of thin air when she arrives one bitterly cold night on the doorstep of Margaret Quinn. A widow who lives alone, Margaret has never got over the loss of her own child, a runaway called Erica who fled with her high school sweetheart, Wiley, to join a '60s-style band of West Coast revolutionaries known as Angels of Destruction. Norah becomes Margaret's secret, a child possessed of magical qualities. But who is she really? And what is her purpose here? And what is this strange child's connection to Margaret's missing daughter?

About the Author:

Keith Donohue is the Director of Communications for the grant-making arm of the National Archives in Washington, D.C. He has written for the New York Times and the Washington Post and is the author of the bestselling novel The Stolen Child.

From AudioFile:

Cassandra Campbell has a difficult mission. She must convince listeners to suspend their disbelief and accept a world that darts between the real and the otherworldly. Nine-year-old Norah arrives in the middle of the night at the home of the lonely Mrs. Quinn. Mrs. Quinn's daughter, Erica, ran away ten years earlier, and she willingly takes in the child and makes up a story to explain her presence. Campbell's narration during this section of the story is whispery. Is she conveying secrecy, Norah's mysterious nature, or the questionable traits of the precocious child? Campbell's reading is more substantial when the character of Erica re-enters the story. She is more solidly developed than the angelic Norah, whose enigmatic, ethereal qualities may or may not hook the listener. S.W. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
