In this memoir, Darcey Steinke, a minister's daughter, recounts her lifelong struggle to find religion. Though wide-eyed and accepting as a girl, Steinke left her faith in her teenage years. She vividly describes the angst, embarassment, uncertainty, and joy of her decades of on-and-off piety.
“I became riveted by Steinke's tone, a steady, lovely, hallowed, patient, things-in-themselves hum…[Easter Everywhere is] a delicately wrought little volume…This is a beautiful book.” —New York Times Book Review In this critically beloved and piercing memoir, Darcey Steinke, a minister’s daughter, recounts her lifelong struggle to find religion.
