Angels of Destruction by Keith Donohue

Angels of Destruction begins on a January night in 1985 when widow Margaret Quinn finds a 9-year waif knocking on her door. The girl's name in Norah and Margaret quickly treats her as if she's her granddaughter. Ten years earlier, her daughter, Erica, ran away with a radical group called Angels of Destruction. Norah befriends a boy, Sean, who was abandoned by his father. Norah begins to show him some of the extraordinary abilities that she possesses. Erica's story of her estrangement and flight from home in 1975 is also told, before the story moves back to 1985 as the Quinn family must deal with the fear and skepticism created by Norah's strange powers. Keith Donohue's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the Washington Post saying, "Angels of Destruction doesn't shrink from the tragedies and inevitable separations that dog us. The book's coda is beautiful and wrenching, yet still leaves its protagonists and readers open to the possibility that the miraculous, once glimpsed, might recur."
