Comments Ordinary Angels

  • Chris Norbury

    I had my doubts about reading a book where the point-of-view is second-person present tense, but Ms. Birdsall dispelled those doubts in about two pages. The protagonist's (May) voice came through loud and clear. Tension ratcheted up gradually and inevitably, resulting in a climatic finish that was logical and satisfying.The prose was simple and direct, accurately capturing thoughts and feelings of a young girl as she grew to high school age, but packed with emotion. Each character was well drawn [...]

  • Mary Johnson

    An amazing look deep into the heart of the eldest daughter in a family where Mom needs serious help. This book was painful to read, but the beauty of the prose and the skillful handling of the second person point of view kept me going. I will not soon forget this family, and the mystery surrounding the death of a young child.

  • Sharon Boehlefeld

    I could scarcely put this down once I started it. I had thought about giving it to my 10- and an 11-year-old grandkids, so I wanted to review it. The story of how the children in a family deal with the unspoken trauma of death and abuse is touching and well-written, but probably is better-suited to older (seventh- to 10th-graders) readers.

    I purchased this novel after taking a class from the author. Bridget is a warm, loving and a very supportive teacher and I was curious to see what kind of writer she was. I was warned that this novel was in second person point of view and it may take a few chapters to immerse myself. I must confess that I did struggle with this, but once I'd adapted, as I've had to do when reading Shakespeare, I enjoyed reading this heartwarming story.The burden of guilt May O'Mally feels after the death of Hal, [...]

    I am so grateful for stumbling upon this GEM of a book. I will be waiting to see what this author offers up next. This book was both disturbing and inspirational. Based on a real life event, the death of her brother, the unfolding story grabs you right from the start and doesn't let go. I cared deeply for the main character, the narrator of this story, and saw the world through her eyes -- the world of alcoholism, neglect, survival and compassion. Bravo Bridget. I felt it was a steal to get it f [...]

  • Linda Tyllo

    This was a riveting read. I only slowed myself down because the topic was so painful and the perspective offered much to reflect upon. Writing this memoir from a second person fictional perspective was unique and brilliant. The story offers great insight into how children are uniquely affected by tragic family dynamics, and how they can be so overlooked by the adults in their lives. Great writing.

  • Abby

    Thought-provoking, often painful portrait of a family mortally marked by toxic stress. The second person narration was initially strange but now easily feels like the only way to honestly tell May's story. Wonder how many Catholic references the average teen reader will get? They certainly added an uncomfortable level of detail (and oddly, guilt) for me.

  • Tomi Nelson

    A captivating first novel by Ms. Birdsall. It held my interest from start to finish.
