Review: A TIME OF ANGELS by Karen Hesse

Semicolon read and reviewed A Time of Angels by Karen Hesse for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

A Time of Angels by Karen Hesse. In 1918 Boston, Hannah Gold must face her own wartime suffering as the influenza epidemic sweeps through her family and town. While the war forms a backdrop for this novel, it’s really the story of a Jewish family and the influenza epidemic of 1918. Fourteen year old Hannah is rather improbably sent out into the streets of Boston by her erstwhile guardian to keep her from catching the flu from her family members, and she ends up, again improbably, in Vermont. Hannah also sees angels.
