Synopsis: Secretly raised as a boy in her father's caravan and schooled in languages and the fine art of negotiation, Adira rejects the looming changes of womanhood that threaten her nomadic life and independence. With the arrival of two mysterious Northmen, rumored to be holy men, Adira's world unravels. She loses everything she values most, including the "Angel" who has awakened her desires. Caught between her culture and freedom, and tormented by impossible love, she abandons all she has known in a dangerous quest to follow the "Angels." With only her beloved dog, Nami, at her side, Adira must use all the skills she learned from her father to survive the perils of the desert, Sodom, and her own heart. "Angels at the Gate" is a story of adventure and the power of love, a compelling saga based on historical research about the ancient biblical world of Abraham, Sodom and Gomorrah, and the woman who "became a pillar of salt."

Critique: A compelling and exceptional read, "Angels At The Gate" documents author T. K. Thorne as an impressively talented novelist. This is the stuff of which block-buster movies are made. Solidly engaging and entertaining from beginning to end, "Angels At The Gate" is very highly recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections. It should be noted that "Angels At The Gate" is also available in a Kindle edition ($7.99).
