9780758284747: The Revelations of Jude Connor

What if being true to yourself meant you had to leave the rest of your life behind?
Could you do it?


Jude Connor's rural Idaho hometown is a place of strong values and high expectations. For those who fit into the local church's narrow confines, there's support and fellowship. For those who don't, there's ostracism in this life and certain damnation in the next.

Jude wants desperately to be saved--to believe with the fervor of Reverend Amos King, whose sermons are filled with brimstone and righteousness. Yet it hasn't been easy. It's not just the forbidden friendship with his unconventional classmate, Pearl, or the difficulties of being orphaned and in his older brother's care. There are the restrictions governing how congregants should behave, the whispers that follow Gregory Hart, a man who cares for his wheelchair-bound sister and offers guidance Jude sorely needs. And there's Jude's burgeoning need to decide for himself how to live, when to question, and who to love.

When loyalty doesn't help Jude overcome his own temptations, he must confront the truth behind the church's façade and his willingness to follow his own path--even if it leads him far from everything he's known. . .

About the Author:

Robin Reardon is an inveterate observer of human nature, and her primary writing goal is to create stories about all kinds of people, some of whom happen to be gay or transgender--people whose destinies are not determined solely by their sexual orientation or identity.

Interests outside of writing include singing, nature photography, and the study of comparative religion. Robin writes in a butter yellow study with a view of the Boston, Massachusetts skyline.

Review:

What readers are saying ...

"Reardon has the perfect way of grabbing our attention, teaching us about something very meaningful, and getting us to keep turning the pages."

"I went from hating the story, to loving it, to hating it again, to really appreciating the point of view the author had on the subject of homosexuality. It was actually quite brilliantly done and didn't just pounce on the church like it was evil, it showed good people who had good intentions and truly did love Jude."

"Reardon makes real life situations grippingly exciting. Things like this really do happen and people like Jude really do exist. The trouble with an author who writes brilliant books, is deciding which one is best. It's a very nice problem to have."
