And So I Prayed: A Novel Excerpt



Shelby Grant meets her husband Kent Gannon while doing scientific research in Cape Town, South Africa, where they both get caught up in a movement against government denial of AIDS in the early 2000s. They return to their homes in the US, marry and have a child. Having always shared an atheistic worldview, their marriage is threatened when Shelby, racked by guilt over something she did in South Africa, turns to the Catholic Church to seek redemption.
