Overview

"I became riveted by Steinke's tone, a steady, lovely, hallowed, patient, things-in-themselves hum…[Easter Everywhere is] a delicately wrought little volume…This is a beautiful book." —New York Times Book Review

In this critically beloved and piercing memoir, Darcey Steinke, a minister's daughter, recounts her lifelong struggle to find religion. Though wide-eyed and accepting as a girl, Steinke left the faith in her teenage years; scene by breathtaking scene, she vividly describes the angst, embarrassment, uncertainty, and joy of her decades of on-and-off piety. Emotional, wise, and beautifully crafted, Easter Everywhere is a rare literary accomplishment, a feat of storytelling and personal insight.

Written like you are reading a diary. Her recollection of detail is astounding. Reading her book is like making different choices in life than I actually did and seeing what would have happened. Her ability to put difficult to articulate sensations, observations, etc. into words is among the best of any author I know. I want to give this book to everyone I know.
