    Rift PDF/EPUB ↠ Paperback rift free, Rift PDFOriginally published at Blog SegullahI'm a city girl I grew up in the great Northeastern megalopolis where it's possible to drive for six or eight hours along Interstate 95 without seeing evidence of the existence of rural America During my BYU years I looked down my nose with derision at the wrangler wearing Animal Science majors and viewed any part of the state of Utah south of Provo with the exception of the national parks and Cedar City during the Shakespeare Festival as one giant speed trap saddled with an unfortunate accentSomehow I managed to fall in love with a boy from Springville whose ancestors hail from Sanpe

    Rift PDF/EPUB ↠ Paperback rift free, Rift PDFThis novel has at least two things going for it First is the gem of a main character Jens Thorsen At first glance he's the your typical grumpy old man with a hidden heart of gold While this description fits Jens he's much than that He is a real three dimensional well developed character Unfortunately such well drawn figures aren't typical enough in LDS themed fiction Many characters in LDS novels are too good or too bad to feel human or just too stereotypical Some of the minor characters in Petersen's book fall into

    Rift PDF/EPUB ↠ Paperback rift free, Rift PDFA feud between a Sanpete county bishop and a crotchety old ward member Hmmm I appreciate what he was trying to do along with some of his observations about small town hypocrisy and narrow mindedness Seemed to need development though as a lot of the conceits fell flat or missed The bare bones of the plot were there but it just didn't gel like it should have Didn't have the impact you wanted it to carry I liked the character of Jens Thorsen the crotchety old man though He was well drawn and you felt sympathetic toward him Maybe since I read this on the heels of The Backslider I am asking too much Certainly Rift has to be much better and complicated than most Mormon fiction but I wouldn't know since I usually avoid it

    Rift PDF/EPUB ↠ Paperback rift free, Rift PDFThere is lots of Mormon fiction out there and a great deal of it is fairly mediocre But there are also some very talented authors in this genre and it is worth seeking them out I found a copy of this book on the sales table at the Benchmark Books exhibit at Sunstone in July of 2018 I'm really glad I picked it up Todd Robert Petersen's writing style is very descriptive and I enjoyed the picture he

    Rift PDF/EPUB ↠ Paperback rift free, Rift PDFI was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this story which I randomly chose off the Library shelf Written by an LDS author it is not your typical Molly Mormon story Mr Petersen developed the main character Jens in such a way that I feel like I know him As a matter of fact he could be anyone's next door neighbor and I would be than happy to have him as my neighbor This well crafted story made me think twice about h

    Rift PDF/EPUB ↠ Paperback rift free, Rift PDFI was hesitant about this book I don't generally read religious fiction That isn't to say that I haven't read religious fiction i just prefer not to As Jim Gaffigan puts it I like to keep work at workThat being said I don't know if i would even classify this as religious fiction Sure the plot was interwoven through a deeply religious community but this story was

    Rift PDF/EPUB ↠ Paperback rift free, Rift PDFLet's get two things out of the way This is apparently religious fiction which is not something I would normally pick up Also Todd Peterson was a professor of mine over 15 years ago The best thing I've ever written was for his class and I still use lessons from his class every dayR

    Rift PDF/EPUB ↠ Paperback rift free, Rift PDFNot a truly great piece of literature but I really enjoyed this novel about crusty old characters in San Pete County Utah The characters were interesting and I thought it gave a pretty honest view of rural Utah I shared the book with two friends one of whom grew up in the area They both enjoyed it The friend who grew up in the area said the resemblances between the main character and his brother could not be all coincidence I thought the depiction of the hypocracy of local church members was a little too harsh but understand how an outsider might see it that way
