For inspiration Michael Walker was eight on the Christmas Day he lost his brother David. For Michael, the meaning of Christmas changed forever. Thirty years later Michael is the neighborhood Grinch. He scowls at his neighbors' fervent holiday traditions and at his own children's innocent love of Christmas. But when another holiday disaster strikes, and his own cherished young son loses his will to live, Michael searches deep within himself to root out the anger, fear, and pain of the past. Can he bear remembering what happened that tragic Christmas day? Will he make peace with this past for the sake of his own children? When Angels Sing, by Turk Pipkin, is an inspiring tale of Christmas spirit lost and found. This small, unassuming little book is one of the precious few guaranteed to wring a tear from even the Grinch himself. It is spectacular.
