Overview

When the darkness of unspeakable tragedy collides with the infinite glory of heaven, what happens? What salve can heal the deepest of wounds when dawn breaks and the nightmare is real? What words can console a grieving father or mother when the blossom of the womb fades and falls? Images of hope, soft words that set the mind at ease, beautiful memories brought home by a beautiful story.

I Know Why the Angels Dance is a healing salve; it incites a cleansing catharsis; it serves as a holy image-maker, mending hearts and minds with glimpses of heaven's glory. It opens spiritual eyes. We are all on a collision course with the unknown. Will it be a plunge into darkness or a passing from one existence into a brighter one?

Two fathers, one in the light and one in darkness, each face the reality of that passage, and both struggle to find and apply the healing balm. Yet, God uses the faith of a child to reach out to the downcast--the hand of an extraordinary girl leads them to the healing they long for.

The reality of death meets the hope of the ages, and the victory comes in the visions and songs of a little girl. After reading I Know Why the Angels Dance, you will cherish life and family like never before, and the passage everyone must make will no longer be a leap into darkness. It will be a step into glory.

A beautiful story.If anyone thinks an author who writes mostly fantasy books can¿t write anything else they are wrong. This book is very different from the other books Bryan Davis wrote; there are no dragons in this one. In this book Davis shows the effect one little girl can have on the lives of the people around her, and how grief is handled by Christian and non-Christians alike. If you like Bryan Davis¿s work take the time to read this book, it is very moving and worth the read.

An atheistic family is stricken with grief, and it seems that no one will be able to breach their hearts and allow God's love to flow. Can a little girl named Tabitha be the key?

I Know Why the Angels Dance is awesome! In the beginning of this book, I thought it was kinda hard to figure out which characters was which. But as the book progressed, I was able to really feel the different personalities,and was able to grow and love them. This book has a atheist family, and a Christian family, each with their own perspective of the world, and of death. I really loved this book. I have never been disappointed with one of Mr. Davis' books!

At the heart of this incredible story is an amazing young girl with a wonderful gift from heaven who brings the concept of "kindness" to an entirely new level. She almost wouldn't even need a story to be loved by almost everyone. Yet her story, intermingled with the varied lives and tales of other characters, offers a power of belief and emotion that is far too often either dulled or simply not concieved by humaity at large. No matter what kind of person you are, even if it doesn't shake your emotions, this story will find some way to touch everyone who reads it.

I was speechless while reading this book. It is one of the few stories that have brought tears to my eyes. Tabitha is such a wonderful example of a shining witness to her friends. People may mock and scorn but seeds are planted, though it may take years or months, they will, eventually, be ready for the harvest. I would especially recommend it for anyone who loves to buy books to read over and over again. This is definitely a keeper!

I Know Why the Angels Dance is modern realistic fiction by Bryan Davis. Readers of his other novels will find the same passion flowing through the story of two families, two daughters, and the response of faith to tragedy. While I normally prefer fantasy novels, this book held me enthralled with the relatable characters and hard-hitting questions. The back cover asks "What happens when the darkness of unspeakable tragedy collides with the infinite glory of heaven?" Something beautiful and glorious, as this book relates.

Bryan Davis, probably best known for his young adult fantasy novels, once again proves himself a master storyteller in I Know Why the Angels Dance. It is a tale of sorrow and joy, of death and eternal life, at once applying a healing balm and encouraging catharsis. Readers will laugh and weep with the characters in this breathtaking novel that will thaw even the coldest of hearts.
