1. The writing is skillful and artistic, a true literary novel. I’ve never seen anything like it in Mormon lit (although I’m no expert–I don’t read much in this genre because I’ve been disappointed with what I’ve tried).
2. The story is meaningful and thought-provoking. Angela’s insights into family and faith go deep. I walked away satisfied and enlightened.
3. The tone is uplifting in the best sense of the word–not sentimental, not happily-ever-after, but hopeful. This is a rare gem–an LDS story that’s realistic AND faith-affirming.
Sound like something you’ve been wishing you could read? That’s what I thought. And the more copies that sell, the more books like this we’ll see. So if at all possible, don’t borrow a copy from the library or a friend, BUY a copy for yourself and consider giving copies as gifts to your reading friends and family this year.
