Product description


"This is a fantastically fun and funny book that gives an entertaining portrait of the Mormon mindset through richly developed and realistic characters. The author uses earthy details to contrast the pathetic messiness inherent in the physical body with the purity of spiritual feelings and experiences. This novel is more faith-exploring than faith-promoting, and the author doesn't just spell out what readers should think. I couldn't help wondering how things would have turned out if the main character had made different choices." --C.L. Hanson, blogger

"This is a love/conversion story, which I usually find sappy, but Bigelow manages to create characters that are at once sympathetic and believable. Although Eliza is zealous in her missionary spirit, she isn't always comfortable in her Mormon skin. Mormons will no doubt recognize a bit of themselves in her good-natured rebellions, and others will probably think, "I knew it! They aren't as sanctimonious as they try to put on." This book is a bit edgier than most Mormon fiction, but clean, entertaining, and fun to read. I'll be on the lookout for more of Bigelow's brand of fiction." --Charlene Hirschi in the Logan Herald Journal

"One of the best things about this novel is how Eliza grows and also how she doesn't. She sees everything in her life as a trial, a blessing, a lesson, or a chance to help others accept the true gospel. This is a very Mormon way of looking at life, and the author doesn't shy away from how over the top it can get. Eliza has her values and priorities, and sometimes she knowingly acts against them. She feels guilty and vows to be better, and then she usually falls short. She's just very, very human." --Rebecca Ellsworth, blogger --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
