An unforgettable story of belief and redemption, Amity & Sorrow ($25.99) is about the influence of community and learning to stand on your own. Peggy Riley’s debut novel is centered around two sisters who escape their father’s polygamous compound only to realize they know nothing of the world beyond it.
A mother and her daughters drive for days without sleep until they crash their car in rural Oklahoma. The mother, Amaranth, is desperate to get away from someone she's convinced will follow them wherever they go--her husband. The girls, Amity and Sorrow, can't imagine what the world holds outside their father's polygamous compound.
