|Plot Summary of This is the Place|
|"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."
JayCe Crawford, Resident Scholar
|"The young lady is the product of a mixed marriage between a morman and a non-morman in a small Utah town in the 1950s. The plot revolves along family realations, prejudice, love-hate relationships. This lady is coming of age, feeling trapped to the land she loves, and explores how to find her own freedom."
David Leonhardt, Resident Scholar
