This synopsis report prepared by David Leonhardt
A young journalist realizes that because she is half Mormon and half Protestant she is not suitable material for love--in the state she lives in, in the town she calls home and even within her own family. She delves into her Mormon heritage and journals her way through prejudice into redemption. This novel, set in Salt Lake City in the 50s, reveals not only complexities for the heart but the secrets of what some consider a mysterious place and culture.
