We Are Called to Rise
Laura McBride

McBride's powerful debut is a tour de force of imagination that packs a wallop. She took a single real-life event and from it spun an immensely moving morality tale about how four vastly disparate people, each traveling his or her own road, all converge at an intersection of time and space to profound effect… McBride is a truly commanding literary presence. - Donna Chavez, Booklist
