Editorial Reviews


Somewhere in the heavenly ethers, Daphne DuMaurier, and the Bronte sisters, must be applauding Kathleen Valentine. She has written an epic, gothic, mystery/ love story that is a glowing tribute to their classic works, replete with chivalric romance, repressed sexuality, a deconsecrated abbey, haunted crypts, missing statues and bodies, and the abiding supernatural. They say a great book changes us, makes us question our way of thinking. When I finished the novel I realized that, after years of disbelieving, I've changed my mind. I DO believe in miracles.

KIANA DAVENPORT, Author Shark Dialogues

The story itself was absorbing, but it was the good writing that had me so entranced. Dialogue was superb, descriptions skillful and lovely. The characters were colorful and interesting, ranging from an artist to a carpenter to a priest; the types of folks one would love to have in their circle of friends. And then there was Zeke, one of the most adorable and endearing dogs it has ever been my pleasure to meet. Each Angel Burns is a perfect Boomer book about middle-aged individuals muddling through their lives and struggles as best they can...- Boomers and Books Blog

Somewhat reminiscent of Sue Monk Kidd's The Mermaid Chair, Each Angel Burns is a story of relationships and turning points among a group of friends who have reached their fiftieth birthdays...What unfolds is a love story, a romance, really, in which even the minor characters must take stock of their lives and decide where to go from here... Resonant with vivid imagery and inner struggles, Each Angel Burns shows that the journey of self-discovery does not end in adolescence. - You're History Modern Lit Blog

From the Back Cover

Who, if I cried, would hear me, of the angelic

orders? or even supposing that one should suddenly

carry me to his heart - I should perish under the pressure

of his stronger nature. For beauty is only a step

removed from a burning terror we barely sustain,

and we worship it for the graceful sublimity

with which it disdains to consume us. Each angel burns.
- Ranier Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies (added by author)
