Mormon Diaries is not the kind of book I normally feature on this blog but I'm rather fond of the author. (See, it does help if your readers like you.)
This is a series of essays, a memoir of sorts on how Sophia Stone when stuck between a rock and a hard place full of questions, pushed back. Smart and well written, you'll be drawn into the book just by reading the sample pages.
I have to give kudos too to the cover art. At first, I thought the Christmas ornament was too limiting, but it's the frayed thread that gives the cover and the book its tension. It speaks volumes.
Mormon DiariesBrought up in a religious home, Sophia believes the only way to have a forever family is by following church leaders and obediently choosing the right. She goes to the right school, marries the right man in the right place, and does the right thing by staying home to raise her children. But when she starts asking questions about grace, love, and the nature of God, she realizes her spiritual struggles could rip her family apart.
I hope you'll check it out. At the very least, go to the Amazon link and click "Like" and some of the tags at the bottom of the page to show a fellow writer your support.
