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 bring her back. Prompted by three
strange carnival fortune-tellers and the surfacing of his
mysterious and reclusive neighbor, Sam 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 Sam
to grapple with an unwelcome question: could it be possible
that death is a gift?
Haunting and hypnotic, The Day the Angels Fell
explores the difficult questions of life in a voice that is
fresh, friendly, and unafraid. With this powerful story,
Shawn Smucker has carved out a spot for himself in the
tradition of authors Madeleine L'Engle and Lois Lowry.
