So.....here's my teaser from page 65 of A Clearing in the Wild by Jane Kirkpatrick:
"Silence filled the church, a place I now thought our leader had chosen for special reasons. Usually our gatherings were at Elim, not in this sacred space. To defy him here, to disagree with the way he saw the world he'd define as blasphemous, would take strong courage."
I will admit that I'm a touch nervous about this book since I've read several mixed reviews. This is the second book for me by this author, and I'll admit that I wasn't doing cartwheels over the first one. However, everyone deserves a second chance, so I'm hoping this one will turn out much better. :o)
