Author Cara Wall on The Dearly Beloved
A vision of an angel over a washing line, a fortuitous job with the First Presbyterian Church in the heart of New York City, and the search for true meaning in all our relationships.
Author Cara Wall discusses the inspirations behind her debut novel “The Dearly Beloved” and invites readers to join as she revisits where she grew up, the questions behind the book's themes and what all readers, regardless of faith, can take away from this story.
“The Dearly Beloved”, on sale now, is a sweeping portrait of two marriages, and the tests of faith and friendship they encounter as the husbands co-pastor a Greenwich Village church in the turbulent 1960s.
