The Evening and the Morning

content.chilifresh-2The Evening and the Morning by Virginia Sorensen

Kate Alexander returns home to Utah after many years away to help right, or at least revisit, some of the follies of her youth. So begins Provo-born Virginia Sorensen’s haunting reflection on love, loyalty, and marriage. Sorensen, a BYU graduate and recipient of the Newbery Medal and two Guggenheim fellowships, often writes about the conflict between personal morality and the larger community. Kate, married at a young age to an older man, finds herself in love with someone else: a violin maker with a wife of his own and a disabled son. This complex book is about why good people do bad things, and, even more, about what happens next.
