The title of this book truly describes what you will find on its pages. Rosaria shares her thoughts and perspectives on her faith journey. It is truly a story of an unlikely convert. It is beautiful because, for some of us, it seems impossible for God save a tenured, feminist lesbian english professor. It is thought provoking (and unsettling) because Butterfield shares how Christianity usually appears to the homosexual community.
You can tell Rosaria is an english professor with how she frames her sentences. They have the flare of somebody who truly appreciates what you can do with words. She employs them with beautiful precision reflecting her reality interwoven with a the beauty of God's grace. You experience her loves, her challenges, her brain at work, and her spiritual growth.
