The Bishop's Wife (Compact Disc)
I am continually looking for a mystery told in an environment or culture foreign to me and this one sure hits the mark.
Set in a Utah city and populated with contemporary Mormon characters, this is written for those of us not of the faith and covers many aspects of their mainstream LDS culture.
Not since John Krakauer's true crime book titled UNDER THE BANNER OF HEAVEN have I sensed I was getting such a complete picture... and it's very well priced at only $10.00.— marla

“Linda Wallheim is the local bishop's wife and the mother of five sons, all but one out of the house and on their own. As a Mormon, Linda has been increasingly frustrated with some of the Church's doctrine. While her life is busy fulfilling her duties with many community services and being the hostess for the ward at all hours, she chafes under the patriarchal beliefs and practices. When she is called to care for a five-year-old girl whose mother has mysteriously disappeared, Linda begins to question the circumstances of the young wife's absence. This is a beautifully written story about a woman who supports her husband as the bishop while recognizing that her inner convictions might go against his will. A compelling read!”
