Teenager Evie Gallagher is stunned when her 45-year-old father dies tragically and suddenly. Too many unanswered questions accompany Evie's challenging journey to adulthood. When she finally discovers the reason her father led such a troubled life, shock turns to anger. Nervous about the first day of his freshman year, 14-year-old Hank Gallagher steps inside Archangels High School for the first time in September of 1954. Although the majestic Archangels statues inside the school's grand lobby present an air of protection, it is not long before Hank passes right under them and into the hands of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Confused and cornered by threats, Hank attempts to abandon his secret to the past, but a horrible wound on his heart eventually leads to a catastrophic breakdown. Chapters alternate between Evie and Hank to reveal a life haunted by betrayal and a revelation of true justice and hope.
