After his mother's death, 12-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.

Glad I was late to read this.
The naming of the characters to the setting, everything was brilliantly planned and laid out.
The sequel comes out next month so I'm not upset I was late in getting to this book :)

GREAT insight, exciting, meaningful story 2 follow
Not only was this a well written book, with a building story until the very end, it provoked deep lessons, and learning. From the first chapter, until the last, I could barely stop listening. I loved the Audible style, as I drive quite a bit, and hearing the story made it even more exciting and meaningful.
I HIGHLY recommend this book in this format, and look forward to more from Shawn Smucker.
