Item description for IN SEARCH OF AN ANGEL by Martin Penalver...

Steve Bidante is eleven years old when events in his life leave him needing hope, when all he breathes is the oxygen of desperation.Forced against his will to make the transformation from boy to man, he clutches at a wafer-thin strand of belief that carries him through the darkness and into the body of a man. Somewhere in his soul lies the belief that one day he will find what he is looking for. His quest from past to present is filled with passion, laughter and happiness intermingled with tragedy and despair when his beliefs are tested to the limit. Share in the touching journey of an unassuming man who knows not why or how he will walk his lonely quest, only that he must follow the path that opens up before him. It is a lonely quest, the search for an angel.

Reviews - What do customers think about IN SEARCH OF AN ANGEL?

A soul searching Journey  Apr 8, 2008
Just when I thought eleven year old boys were into playing baseball and football and maybe having their first kiss, I realized after reading Martin Penalvers novel, that there is another side of a young boys full of awe, wonderment and loneliness for Steve, the main character but knowing he is meant to take this path in life.
This was a wonderful and endearing book that I couldn't put down. I looked forward to night time, after a long days work, to have IN SEARCH OF AN ANGEL to read. Thanks Martin!
In Search of an Angel  Jan 30, 2008
A wonderful book! It's the kind of story that you'll ask yourself, "I wonder what Steve is up to?", and then pick up the book and start reading where you left off. And after finishing the book, hoping another book, the next 'chapter' in Steve's life, will be coming out soon.

Traversing relationships and attitudes between generations, families, and friends, Steve searches for the angel he knows is guiding him for reasons he must discover.
Auspicious Debut  Nov 28, 2007
The best selling author Joe McGinniss (Fatal vision, The selling of the President) blurbs Penalvers debut book as 'auspicious.' I couldnt agree more. In Search of an Angel is Penalvers account of a small child coming to terms with the tragedy of losing both parents in a car crash. During the transfornmation from boy to man the tragedy is never far away in Steve Bidante's mind. Penalver writing style is a mixture of Frank Mccourt (Angelas Ashes) and Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)

Penalvers style is highly readable, written in the first person he skilfully and cleverley jumps between the thoughts of Steve Bidante the eleven year old child and Bidante as an adult. It is the thought patterns of that eleven year old child that moved me the most especially at his parents funeral. The child is confused and at the same time unsure of how he should behave. Penalver delivers the scene wonderfully from the childs perspective relatively early in the book. It sets the book up nicely making the reader want to read on. The remainder of the book doesn't dissapoint climaxing a very special ending. An excellent debut Mr Penalver something for everyone.
