"Step into a world of secret societies and angelic beings!"
Sister Evangeline of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual
Adoration has chosen to bury most of her childhood memories.
Since it was her father's wish she remain at St. Rose
Convent, Evangeline took her vows and has since become
immersed in the lifestyle—one of ritual and devotions.
Evangeline works in the convent library as Sister
Philomena's assistant. It's a life in which Evangeline has
found contentment. Then one day, something happens which
turns Evangeline's life upside-down. As part of her work in
the library, it is Evangeline's job to answer
correspondence. This particular morning, Evangeline finds a
letter from a researcher asking about any correspondence
between Mother Innocenta—the founder of St. Rose Convent—and
Abigail Rockefeller. Well, Evangeline does what she's always
done with any request for access to the library—she refuses
the researcher admittance. However, the request strikes
Evangeline as being out of the ordinary and so she begins to
investigate and looks for any correspondence between the two
herself. All that she finds is one letter, but it is proof
that a correspondence did exist between Mother Innocenta and
When the researcher shows up in person, for some strange
reason, Evangeline feels comfortable with him and instead of
showing him the door, the two of them show each other the
correspondence in their possession. This begins the point
where they both become involved in the secret Society of
Angelologists. Evangeline begins to remember bits and pieces
of her childhood and some of the things she's seen.
Verlaine, on the other hand, begins to run for his life.
Will Evangeline be able to discover what role she is to take
with the angelologists? What will happen with Verlaine? Will
he ever be safe again?
ANGELOLOGY is an interesting peek into the world of angels,
Nephilim and all types of angelic beings. Danielle Trussoni
leads us into a fascinating tale of a secret society. This
is not just a story of one individual however, as we also go
into the past and get a secondhand account of Evangeline's
grandmother's life as a young woman in pre-war France
through the eyes of a nun now in St. Rose Convent. And
slowly but surely, Evangeline learns her destiny. This story
has plots and subplots galore. There is danger, murder, and
death as well. While it may start a bit on the slow side, it
builds up to an unexpected ending.
