Their father, Oren, is a respected member of the community and science professor at the local college. Yet their mothera€™s depression and Gracea€™s religious fervor threaten the seemingly perfect family, whose world is upended when Grace returns from a missionary trip to Mexico and discovers shea€™s pregnant witha€”she believesa€”the child of God. Distraught, Oren sends Jory and Grace to an isolated home at the edge of the town. There, they prepare for the much-awaited arrival of the baby while building a makeshift family that includes an elderly eccentric neighbor and a tattooed social outcast who drives an ice cream truck. The Girl Who Slept with God is a literary achievement about a familya€™s desperate need for truth, love, purity, and redemption.
