Angels Sleep Alone
by James Robert Peery


t’s 1942. War rages in Europe and Japan. Journalist and radio celebrity Bob Sessions sees the woman who will change his life—the daughter of a “Holy Roller” preacher from rustic North Mississippi. Angels Sleep Alone is a poignant, dramatic, and funny novel of love found and lost and found again in wartime America, and of a different kind of war—class war—in the fictitious capital city of Madison, Mississippi. Peery’s earlier novels, Stark Summer and God Rides a Gale (Harper & Brothers 1938 and 1940 respectively, now out of print) were best sellers in their day. Peery died in 1954 at the age of 54, leaving behind this unpublished novel. And now Angels Sleep Alone, passed down to his daughter and then granddaughter, rises.
