Not of This Fold by Mette Ivie Harris

Following up on her debut novel in the  Linda Wallheim mystery series, Mette Ivie Harris's new novel, Not of This Fold, again ventures into the world of Mormon women fighting for power and a voice. Wallheim is pulled by her friend and fellow doubter, Gwen Ferris, into the investigation of a murder of a Latina mother whose death threatens to reveal corruption at the very highest levels of church leadership. Harris also deftly handles the side plot of Wallheim's son Samuel's struggles as an openly gay man on his first mission. Her intimate understanding of Mormonism and carefully drawn, complex characters will draw readers into a world and a faith tradition in transition, mirroring the struggles of the larger culture. Review by Kely Barth.
