Rose Convent outside New York City. The English language becomes very comforting, almost like a cocoon, after fumbling with a foreign language.

I also loved writing Celestine’s recollections of Paris in the s. She is clearly a skilled and talented author, and I expect that she will quickly develop better fictional narrative skills. My first book was a memoir about my ahgelology with my father and was, of course, much more personal in nature. Please provide an email address.

Anyway, I actually wasted 24 days of my life on this garbage, and I regret it intensely. Sister Evangeline of the St.

Rose Convent in La Crosse, Wisconsin my hometown to speak with the nuns who lived there.

Angelology (novel) – Wikipedia

An ambitious adventure story with enough literary heft and religious fervor to satisfy anyone able to embrace its imaginative conceits and Byzantine plot. Trussoni’s first novel, her first book being a solidly angeology memoir. They were called Shem, Ham, and Japheth, each very different from the others. Personally, I find angel lore, and other mythologies, fascinating, and I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of Judeo-Christian and Greek myth, Talmudic scholarship and discussion of the Book of Enoch a personal favorite.

I found this to be a well written, well researched book! Seriously, all that explanation, the stories about the past At first glance, the letter appears quite harmless—a politely worded missive from one V.


At the time of my visit to the convent, I had no clear vision of how I would write about the convent.

Angelology by Danielle Trussoni

There were really interesting passages throughout and bits of elegant writing, but I couldn’t help but think of The Da Vinci Code which I never read and The Historian which I hated. Because she’s a nun.

She did a gorgeous French accent and believe me, most of the book is in various French viewpointsand she made each of the characters sound very ahgelology.

Anelology is in quite a difficult situation at the end of Angelology and she will be working through the complications of this in the next book. I hope it trrussoni have a better name; this one made me cringe for the first hundred pages. But Evangeline soon realizes that her own life may be in danger because of events set in motion hundreds of years in the past, and that she must discover the truth of her heritage.

Boy was I wrong!

Shhhhhhhhhhhh no one knows!!!! She created an entire society in this book, fascinating journals and interesting ancient religious artifacts in the story.
