Easter Everywhere

Genre: Nonfiction, Memoir; Author: Darcey Steinke; Publisher: Bloomsbury

”I was a blonde-haired teenager…attending a church lined with felt banners that said JOY! REJOICE! PEACE!” writes Darcey Steinke, daughter of a Lutheran minister. ”But I was also a weepy creature ruled by base longings and haunted by rage and melancholy.” She abandoned her dad’s religion for the glamour (and then depression) surrounding her ex-beauty-queen mother. In Easter Everywhere, Steinke unflinchingly recounts years of disillusionment in her stumble back toward faith, yet remains emotionally detached. While Easter may be too remote to win converts, the hope of redemption in the face of brokenness offers a saving grace.
