This is the story of Jeanette, adopted and brought up by her mother as one of God's elect. Zealous and passionate, she seems destined for life as a missionary, but then she falls for one of her converts.

An explosively imaginative writer. - The London Free Press <br> She is a master of her material, a writer [of] great talent. - Muriel Spark <br> Many consider her to be the best living writer in this language. - Evening Standard <br> The overwhelming impression of her work is one of remarkable self-confidence, and she evidently thrives on risk.... As good as Poe: it dares you to laugh and stares you down. - The New York Review of Books <br> The most interesting writer I have read in twenty years. -Gore Vidal
