We Sinners: Book summary and reviews of We Sinners by Hanna Pylväinen
We Sinners Summary
The Rovaniemis and their nine children belong to a deeply traditional church (no drinking, no dancing, no TV) in modern-day Michigan. A normal family in many ways, the Rovaniemis struggle with sibling rivalry, parental expectations, and forming their own unique identities in such a large family. But when two of the children venture from the faith, the family fragments and a haunting question emerges: Do we believe for ourselves, or for each other?
We Sinners Reviews
"Pylväinen, who grew up in the same fundamentalist faith as her characters, doesn't judge their choices in this remarkably sensitive family portrayal, a powerful and unforgettable debut that manages to balance successfully its multiple perspectives." - Library Journal
