The story is seen through the eyes of all of the characters in the book. The main narrators are three children at the turn of the 20th century. I found the book interesting in the development of the characters' awareness and understanding of the real life around them. Not all of them are etched in stone: unchanging and unwavering in their convictions and desires for passion in their lives. I recommend this book.

This was an okay story, it was kind of slow and drawn out. I did not find any of the characters to be of real interest. There was no real intrigue. This would bo a good coming of age book for a teenage girl.

Fallen Angels doesn't disappoint. The story is tightly woven with wonderful literary details, historical facts, drama, tragedy, and a voice of the early 20th century.
