About the Book:

An essay collection examining the role of faith--and the value of doubt--in a young woman's life, as she contemplates her own and others' experiences. [This is] a thoughtful and graceful contemplation of religious faith in the context of ordinary life, and how such faith has shaped and enlarged the writer's sense of purpose the world. (written by Carrie Brown, fiction novelist and my mentor for this work)

About the Author:

I am a recent graduate of Hollins University located in Roanoke, VA, with a degree in English/Creative Writing and music. I have written since childhood and love to write in nearly every genre-- primarily nonfiction essay, poetry, and fiction. I also love to play the piano; music is a huge influence on my writing. I look forward to connecting with all of you wonderful writers here on Book Country!

Author's Note:

I completed this essay collection towards receiving departmental honors in English at Hollins University. I hope that my faith throughout triumphs and tribulations in my life (and those I care about) will inspire all who read this work. I would particularly appreciate feedback on flow, interconnection (or lack thereof) of essays, and authenticity of voice.
