Flowering in the Desert by Angie Welsh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It isn't because I know the author that I give this book a glowing review. From the beginning I felt transported back to my own childhood and marveled at the authenticity of main character Mandy's experiences and teenage feelings. I especially appreciated the truthful depictions of growing up as a Mormon in a Utah town. And before you assume that this novel is for Mormon readers only, it definitely is not. While Mandy's faith does play a significant roll in her life and her decisions as a teenager, she is a typical young woman trying to make her way through life via high school. And don't let the cover fool you, the time frame is actually the past couple of decades.
Well done, Angie! I look forward to more from you.
