I loved this book! Davis is a wonderful storyteller; his characters are well done, 'real' people. This is a murder mystery, a coming-of-age novel, and a love story all rolled into one. This kept me reading, because I had to find out what happened! (Plus, I live in the Allegheny Mountains too...beautiful setting!)

An easy read. This is a new author for me and i very much enjoyed this novel. Angels rest is a place called a peak, eleven year old Charlies mom told him, a place at the top of the mountains where Angels came to rest before coming to earth. This takes place in 1967 and Charlie and his mom are poor. His daddy was killed by a shot gun blast and his momma is put on trial for murder. This is a great read and i will be looking for more from this author. There is much depth in this book and alot of emotional issues.
