Taken into the All Denominational Church of Father James Neeley, Rose is something out of the Wild West, a bandit queen whose story is taken to heart by all present, most deeply by 6 year old Mary Stuart.The story is driven by the well developed character of young Mary and the people she interacts with, helps and changes in her short, productive life. There is a freshness here that is lacking in so many standard novels of our time. As one reads “Wild Angel,” there is really no guessing what will happen next.Above are Excerpts from a Review By William David BarryMaine Sunday Telegram May 4, 2003
