Dramatic in all the right ways, author Rhonda Tibbs writes of what it means to survive and what it means to be inspired in Angel's Blues, her much-anticipated precursor to Song of the Swman. Truly satisfying, this character-driven vel is intimate, wise, and heartfelt - here's proof that, if we listen, God answers our prayers. In fact, God sends us angels to match wits with our demons, and during dark times offers the soft light of love. Seventeen-year-old Michael O'Mara has every reason to doubt life, love, and his place in the world. Labeled a genius before he could open the door and run, he's lost faith in what matters most. The only thing he kws is it shouldn't take a genius to foresee the consequences of telling the truth about the abuse he suffered at the hands of those who should have loved him most. If only he'd remained silent, years of torment wouldn't be his penance - and maybe some small part of him might even be lovable. Forced to flee Brooklyn, he ends up in Texas where he falls in love with an exceptional girl named Beth Thomas, but shies away once she returns his affection. Later, in the mountains of Wyoming, he discovers the first measure of peace he's ever kwn. He'd just as soon stay there forever, but circumstances lead him back to New York where his brilliant mind dazzles the corporate community, but when his father reaches out for a final blow from his deathbed, Michael is forced to face the nightmares of his past or lose everything.
