It was the summer of storms and strays and strangers. The
summer that lightning struck the big oak tree in the front
yard. The summer his mother died in a tragic accident. As he
recalls the tumultuous events that launched a surprising
journey, Samuel can still hardly believe it all happened.
After his mother's death, twelve-year-old Samuel Chambers
would do anything to turn back time. Prompted by three
strange carnival fortune-tellers and the surfacing of his
mysterious and reclusive neighbor, Samuel begins his search
for the Tree of Life--the only thing that could possibly
bring his mother back. His quest to defeat death entangles
him and his best friend Abra in an ancient conflict and
forces Samuel to grapple with an unwelcome question: could
it be possible that death is a gift?
Haunting and hypnotic, The Day the Angels Fell is a story
that explores the difficult questions of life in a voice
that is fresh, friendly, and unafraid. With this powerful
debut, Shawn Smucker has carved out a spot for himself in
the tradition of authors Madeleine L'Engle and Lois Lowry.
