After decades of living on the edge, Heather King settled into sobriety, marriage, and a financially lucrative but unfulfilling career as an upwardly mobile lawyer. As someone who had reached middle age "never believing in much of anything,"she found herself in the last place she thought she'd end up: the Catholic Church. An unforgettable, fervent, darkly funny tale of an ongoing, stumbling conversion, Redeemed will appeal to fans of Lauren Winner's Girl Meets God and Anne Lamott's writing. King's refreshing sense of humor, mesmerizing voice, and piercing honesty will touch readers whatever their beliefs.

"This memoir deserves to be as popular as Elizabeth Gilbert's . . . Eat, Pray, Love."
-The Boston Globe

"As honest and raw as the model of the spiritual memoir, the Confessions,/I> of St. Augustine."
-Los Angeles Times
