The Bishop’s Wife and His Right Hand by Mette Ivie HarrisonRead about another entry on the list.
Mette Ivie Harrison, previously the author of numerous young adult novels, is now two books into her Linda Wallheim series. The Bishop’s Wife, Harrison’s first in the series, tackles relationship violence in the Mormon community while exploring the lure of a traditional Mormon lifestyle. His Right Hand, her second Wallheim novel, takes on the negative consequences of too-strict gender roles as Wallheim seeks the murderer of a transgender Mormon man. Through the internal world of Linda, Harrison’s kindness, intelligence, and empathy show throughout both novels. I can’t wait to see where the series takes us next!
