The Rapture of Canaan
Title: The Rapture of Canaan
Author: Sheri Reynolds
I just finished the book The Rapture of Canaan by Sheri Reynolds.
I really enjoyed this book. It is about a girl living in a religious community but she attends a public school. As she gets older she starts to question the beliefs the “community” is teaching her. Excellent book.

At the Church of Fire and Brimstone and Gods Almighty Baptizing Wind, Grandpa Herman makes the rules for everyone, and everyone obeys, or else. Try as she might, Ninah hasn’t succeeded in resisting temptation her prayer partner, James and finds herself pregnant. She fears the wrath of Grandpa Herman, the congregation and of God Himself. But the events that follow show Ninah that Gods ways are more mysterious than even Grandpa Herman understands.
