Angel Falling Softly


A new novel by Eugene Woodbury, coming later this summer from Zarahemla Books.

Over the past six months, Rachel Forsythe's perfect life has descended from the ideal to the tragic. The younger of her two daughters is dying of cancer. Despite her standing as the wife of a respected Mormon bishop, neither God nor medical science has blessed her with a cure.

Or has He?

Milada Daranyi, chief investment officer at Daranyi Enterprises International, has come to Utah to finalize the takeover of a Salt Lake City-based medical technology company. Bored with her downtown hotel accommodations, she rents a house in the Sandy suburbs.

And then the welcome wagon shows up. Her neighbors perceive her to be a beautiful, intelligent, and daunting young woman. But Rachel senses something about Milada that leads her in a completely different--and very dangerous--direction.

Rachel is right. Milada is homo lamia. A vampire. Fallen. And possibly the only person in the world who can save her daughter.

As Rachel uncovers Milada's secrets, she becomes convinced that, as Milton writes, "all this good of evil shall produce." Pushing against every moral boundary in order to protect their families, the price of redemption will prove higher than either of them could have possibly imagined.

Starting in June, I will also be publishing Angel Falling Softly online in serial novel format. Over the next year, a new chapter will be posted at the beginning of each week.
