Amity & Sorrow by Peggy Riley

Title: Amity & Sorrow

Author: Peggy Riley

Publisher: Little, Brown and Company

Publication Date: April 16, 2013




A mother and her daughters drive for days without sleep until they crash their car in rural Oklahoma. The mother, Amaranth, is desperate to get away from someone she’s convinced will follow them wherever they go–her husband. The girls, Amity and Sorrow, can’t imagine what the world holds outside their father’s polygamous compound. Rescue comes in the unlikely form of Bradley, a farmer grieving the loss of his wife. At first unwelcoming to these strange, prayerful women, Bradley’s abiding tolerance gets the best of him, and they become a new kind of family. An unforgettable story of belief and redemption, AMITY & SORROW is about the influence of community and learning to stand on your own.

Amity & Sorrow by Peggy Riley came on my radar when I received an invite to read it via Netgalley a few days ago. From the haunting yet powerful cover to a main part of the plot being fleeing from a cult compound, Amity & Sorrow is exactly the kind of fiction I would enjoy.
