My Tuesday post where I’ll ‘tease‘ you with the cover, blurb, and first paragraph of one of the advanced reader’s copies from my own TBR.
This book is a title I downloaded from NetGalley.
Today, Tuesday July 6th, 2021 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.

1) I’m endlessly intrigued with exploring different family dynamics.
2) This novel showcases a dysfunctional family and the blurb alludes to some ‘unforgivable’ mysterious event.
3) I love novels that have themes of ‘starting over’ and family secrets.
4) I’ve not yet read any of this author’s work, and I’m always open to discovering new authors.
“June 1, 1975
It was the first Sunday of the month, which meant Fast and Testimony. Tasmin was stuck in the Rigby family pew, sandwiched between her eldest brother, Aran, to her left, and the twins Ondi and Brig, to her right. The twins had recently turned nineteen, so they were taut with expectation, expecting to receive their calls to missionary work. Ondi and Brig were dreaming already of the places they would go, the new lands that would open eager arms, desperate for salvation. Ondi was actually shivering. Tasmin could feel it, a vibration running all through her brother, as if his soul (whatever a soul was) couldn’t bear to keep still, even though his body remained calm and reverent, his back erect and his arms folded in the prescribed posture of sanctity.”
Have you ever read anything by this author?
