Adah spent her first twenty-five years with her family as part of a fringe religious sect. Her only contact with the outside world was through customers at their farm store. Then she met Julian, a photojournalist who'd come to document their lifestyle. They eloped mere days later and Adah was thrust into a completely new life as a wife, city-dweller, and an individual allowed to make her own decisions. But she has no idea who she is.
On her twenty-sixth birthday, Julian plans to fly home from an assignment to give her her first-ever birthday present. He's thrilled when Katherine Cramer gives up her seat so he can make the flight. But the plane crashes and everyone on board is killed, including Julian.

Ada was born into a fringe religious sect named for her father, The Prophet. But her lifelong habit of absolute obedience was shattered when she fled the family compound to elope with photographer Julian Goetz.

When a tragic plane crash takes Julian from Ada and exacerbates Katherines sense of shame, both women become desperately unsure of where they belong in the worlduntil the devotion of an artistic young boy conspires to bring them together.
From award-winning novelist Christa Parrish, Still Life is a cunningly complex work that captures themes of abusive religion, supernatural love, and merciful escape. It will resonate with anyone who has ever felt called to a drastic changeor tried to hear the small whisper of Gods voice.
'...this is a haunting examination of life in all its gritty and painful moments.'
Parrishs style is quietly contemplative. The writer has a gift for portraying deep, meaningful emotion and transformation in a relatable, touching way.
