The Angels of Morgan Hill by Donna VanLiere
It's 1947. Nine-year-old Jane Gable first lays eyes on young Milo Turner the day that her alcoholic father is buried.
The Turners are the first black family ever to live in Morgan Hill, TN and Jane can't understand why some people are angry.
When tragedy strikes the Turner household, the Gables are asked to make a decision that could rip their family apart. One path might open up a whole new world to them and bring them closer than ever. The other might bring them nothing but trouble and heartache. As Jane struggles to make sense of the changes in her community, she will soon learn about the angels who surround her, every day, in the most extraordinary—and ordinary—ways.
