Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


"We must fight the tendency to reduce the world's cultures to sound bites and remember that all religions in all countries are composed of real people."


So writes Lisa Rowe Fraustino in her introduction to Soul Searching, an inspired collection of short stories and the answer to the prayers of anyone looking for a book that ponders faith.

Thirteen stirring narratives by acclaimed authors illuminate the world's major religions — Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism — as well as a few lesser-known belief systems. From Linda Oatman High's story of Sadie, who is shunned by her small Amish community, to Elsa Marston's Mujahhid, who grapples to understand the idea of jihad within the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, each of these thirteen adolescent protagonists is faced with a life-altering crisis that triggers an evaluation of the way he or she believes.

About the Author

Lisa Rowe Fraustino is the award-winning editor of the acclaimed anthology Dirty Laundry: Stories About Family Secrets and the author of two novels, Grass and Sky and z as well as the ALA Notable Book, The Hickory Chair, illustrated by Benny Andrews. Lisa resides in New England where she teaches at Eastern Connecticut State University.
