  • Crooked Hallelujah, Kelli Jo Ford
    Grove Press, 9780802149121, July 14, 2020 (Fiction)

    “Following three generations of women bound up in patterns of intermittent poverty, religious fervor, violence, and the fierce but fraught bond between mothers and daughters, this powerful and heartfelt novel swept me off my feet. "

    Mary Williams, Skylight Books (Los Angeles, CA)

    “Three generations of women struggle with their Native American heritage, poverty, and adherence to a fundamentalist religion as they strive for better lives. Grandmother, mother, and daughter discover their personal depth and their bond to each other while working to survive and hoping for the future. Set in Oklahoma and Texas, with characters whose stubborn pride and work ethic make you root for them, this story embodies the spirit of strong women who battle the limitations of class, culture, and their own beliefs. At times, as wildfires rage, even the earth seems set against them.”

    Deon Stonehouse, Sunriver Books & Music (Sunriver, OR)
