Angel On Assignment

by Joann Klusmeyer

About The Book

Amy Catherine is a sixteen-year-old mountain lass, born ahead of her time with an ambition that impelled her to at least put a crack the glass ceiling of her age by taking charge of her own life.  She is greatly influenced by the strong opinions of her grandmother in the choice of a boyfriend.

Joining her in this book is Johnny who adores her, and eventually takes on the railroad and a raging river to protect her inheritance.  Together, these two reflect the conditions and attitudes of those of their era.  This book is written in the dialect of their community with their ways of speaking.

About The Author

Joann was born in the mountains of Arkansas in 1933, in the height of the depression, into the family of a pioneer minister. She was attracted to pencils and paper from the time she learned not to poke pencils in her eyes, and that paper did not taste particularly good.

Having an older sister who aspired to be a school teacher, she became a class of one and was expected to master reading at a very early age. Books became the magic that would transport her into another life, and she read and re-read the few that were available until they were limp scraps. It was about then that more stories began to develop within her own head, along with simple rhyming verses. This book is one of the stories.

Her father’s occupation as a minister, by necessity, put her in church several times a week, where she practically cut her teeth on a church bench, so to speak. There was the small country church that her father built and pastored for years, and later the other churches where he was called, and in that way, she became uniquely positioned to meet a lot of people on a regular basis, and appreciate the hard-working settlers who pioneered the land in America’s midwest.
