Author Laura McBride
This month’s debut author grew up in Spokane, and whose debut book, “We Are Called to Rise,” has received starred reviews from Library Journal, been picked by booksellers as the number one Indie Next Pick for June as well as the American Booksellers Association for their Indies Introduce selection! It is a boomtown tale, in which the lives of disparate people collide in a stunning coincidence. When presented the opportunity to sink into despair, these characters rise. Through acts of remarkable charity and bravery, they rescue themselves. Emotionally powerful yet tender and intimate, this is a novel of redemption and unexpected love. Three lives are bound together by a split-second mistake, and a child’s fate hangs in the balance. What happens next will test - and restore - your faith in humanity.
