The Day the Angels Fell

Winner of Christianity Today’s 2018 Book of the Year for Children and Youth!

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. Samuel can still hardly believe it all happened.

Haunting and hypnotic, The Day the Angels Fell explores the difficult questions of life in a voice that is fresh, friendly, and unafraid. Shawn Smucker has carved out a spot for himself in the tradition of authors Madeleine L’Engle and Lois Lowry.


“Neil Gaiman meets Madeleine L’Engle. I read it in two days!”–Anne Bogel, Modern Mrs. Darcy
