Laura's November 2018 pick
Not for the faint of heart, this book centers on Gentry, a young girl growing up in a polygamous Mormon cult in New Mexico. The storys shows all aspects of her community's faith, from the good to the bad to the downright ugly. Despite the heavy nature of its topic, The Prophet Calls has some truly wonderful moments of levity, beauty, and kindness. It also deals with the intersection of disability and faith, as Gentry's younger sister has Down Syndrome.
To be honest, I read this book in one day, in a single sitting. It is poignant and powerful, and I was unable to put it down. I cannot stress how much I want absolutely everyone to read it. It's Melanie Sumrow's debut, and I hope she writes more. There is something breathtakingly important about this book, something I don't quite have a name for.
