Description

"Simply delicious fun from start to finish." That's how Kirkus Reviews described the second novel by Laury A. Egan, "The Outcast Oracle," in its starred review. 

"The Outcast Oracle" is about a teenage girl, but it's a book for any adult who remembers the traumas of adolescence and the shock of discovering that religion is not al it's cracked up to be.

On the shores of New York's Lake Ontario in 1959, Charlene Beth Whitestone has been deserted by her parents, leaving her in the custody of her grandfather, C. B. Although he loves Charlie, he is a charming con artist, moonshiner, and religious fraud who inducts her into his various enterprises yet also encourages her dreams of becoming a writer. When C. B. suddenly dies, Charlie is left alone and must us her wits and resourcefulness to take charge of her life, all the while wrestling with the morality of continuing her grandfather's schemes. When a handsome cowboy-stranger, Blake, arrives, he insinuates himself into C.B.'s religion business and into Charlie's heart. Despite her resistance, Blake mounts a lucrative PR campaign, touting Charlie as an "oracle" and arranging former to perform miracles.

"It's this highly literary, easily accessible writing that lifts this story to the very top of the heap," the Kirkus review concluded.
