In this collection of Mormon short stories, we see a supporter of Prop 8 forced to attend his boss's gay wedding. A devout Latter-day Saint struggling to pay his bills wonders if he should keep paying tithing, even after being excommunicated. A reporter seeks the identity of Salt Lake's new superhero--a masked man wearing temple clothes who mysteriously shows up at crime scenes. A woman is murdered in the temple on her wedding day. A man injured in a terrorist bombing reflects on his own contribution to the misery in the world. A young woman confronted by eye-opening information on the Internet makes a heroic quest to the Church Office Building in Salt Lake to discover the answers to her questions. A man committed to marrying a virgin in the temple loses his wife on their wedding anniversary. One of the Three Nephites is missing in Pasadena.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 27, 2014 – In this entertaining collection, Townsend author of 16 books, including Morman Underwear creates a kaleidoscope of Morman characters young and old, male and female, gay and straight, who find themselves at odds with the demands of their religion. In Going Home, a 56-year-old man no longer wants to live. He maintains good appearances by going to work and loving his family, but worries that wanting to die is a sin. In Temple Man, a reporter covers the good deeds of an aspiring temple-clothes-wearing superhero, while internally questioning the value of the hero s deeds. In The Venetian Blinds of Heaven, an excommunicated Mormon clings to his religion and agonizes over whether he should continue to pay tithing or let his family endure financial struggles. Although Townsend s prose is sharp, clear, and easy to read, and his characters are well rendered, some of the stories don t reveal the inner turmoil of LDS life, as the author claims. At times, readers will have trouble identifying with the characters in many cases, the turmoil and chaos of their lives feels far too muted.
