  3. Like many outstanding classic novels and this one is destined to be one , Angel Fire merits than a once through Trying to live with the alarming, engrossing, yet realistic ending both appalls me and makes sense I should not say I am surprised though, as those same adjectives describe Ron Franscell s storytelling throughout this story of two loyal brothers long parted by the Vietnam War and death Daniel s and Cassidy s show of empathy, support, and sustenance for each other paints a picture of a [...]


  4. DisappointedThe initial reviews of this book sounded very promising but a third of the way into it I just didn t have it in me to finish it I can see how some may enjoy the style of writing, but I feel the story got lost in the going back and forth between decades I believe the book would be much meaningful and enjoyable had it not.


  5. This is one of the best books I have ever read, and is a complete treasure It is one to read and read again, and always has the power to move you I cannot even begin to describe the emotional impact, and the author s ability to tell a story that enhances, embraces and touches our humanity in this powerful and marvelous book.


  6. One of my favorite books I have read it a couple of times, and both times I read it through in one sitting


  7. Cassidy s brother Daniel returns home after 24 years The family believed he had died in Vietnam.



  8. I grew up in a small town in Montana, so could easily relate to the rural scenes Franscell had a lot to say, I am still digesting Liked the book and may read his other one.
