fathermothergod: Book summary and reviews of fathermothergod by Lucia Greenhouse
Lucia Ewing had what looked like an all-American childhood. She lived with her mother, father, sister, and brother in an affluent suburb of Minneapolis, where they enjoyed private schools, sleep-away camps, a country club membership, and skiing vacations. Surrounded by a tight-knit extended family, and doted upon by her parents, Lucia had no doubt she was loved and cared for. But when it came to accidents and illnesses, Lucia's parents didn't take their kids to the doctor's office - they prayed, and called a Christian Science practitioner.
"I really wanted to like this book. It taught me a lot about Christian Science and some of it was quite compelling. However, other parts dragged and/or repeated needlessly. Also, Greenhouse provides an amazing amount of detail about her extended family which is difficult to keep up with and I eventually ended up asking myself why I needed to know about them at all." - Stacey Rae Brownlie, BookBrowse
