Sherry Robinson, author of Blessed, will be signing and reading her new novel Blessed at the Book Loft of German Village. “Noteworthy for the questions that it raises…Blessed is an appealing, thought-provoking novel that interrogates religious obligation and altruism.”—Foreword Review Clarion Review (5 out of 5 rating)
Grayson Armstrong’s vision for a dying church has everyone in small-town Mercy, Kentucky, talking. It’s his untimely death, though, that has everyone trying to understand who they thought he was.
This vivid, poignant, and heart-breaking story is told by multiple characters whose paths intersect with Grayson: a homeless Vietnam veteran haunted by demons of war; the local diner’s young waitress grappling with her family’s dark history; aggrieved and supportive congregants and townspeople confronting change and the power of love and hate; and Grayson’s wife and his coming-of-age gay son, struggling to understand their own feelings about Grayson.
Blessed is ultimately a story of hope and the power of forgiveness.
“Sherry Robinson’s Blessed is a “thoughtful religious novel [that]…tells the story of an unorthodox preacher’s effect on a small southern town. …[T]his novel asks many probing questions, using a light blend of mystery, tragedy, and reflection.”
