Uncut Diamonds

Uncut Diamonds

by Karen Jones Gowen

Other Format



Uncut Diamonds celebrates family– the ordinary, the outrageous, the comical and the tragic. It is Steel Magnolias with Mormon characters.

Set in the late 70′s, when gold medallions and disco dancing, bell bottoms and bushy sideburns, Star Wars and Saturday Night Fever are all the rage. Jimmy Carter is President during a frightening recession, with mortgage interest rates at 13% and fuel bills higher than house payments. In rural Central Illinois, a young Mormon couple, Marcie and Shawn McGill, struggle to save their home, family and marriage during these uncertain times.

Follow Marcie and her two sisters as their lives intertwine. Beautiful Cindy who is single and dating, too often the wrong guy. Linda, the ugly duckling turned into beautiful swan, who married rich and lives in Denver with her husband and young daughter. And the parents– the kindly Methodist minister and his cheerful wife, who do whatever they can to help everyone out.
