'A guy who hung out with lepers, paralytics, the possessed- this is someone I can trust.'

After decades of living on the edge, Heather King settled into sobriety, marriage, and a lucrative but unfulfilling career as an upwardly mobile lawyer in L.A. As someone who had reached middle age 'never believing in much of anything,' she quit her job and found herself in the last place she thought she'd end up- the Catholic Church. After her 'holy' phase of wearing rags in solidarity with poor (then discovering she was just cheap), she finds her faith sustaining her through breast cancer, a parent's death, the devastation of divorce, the perils and glories of writing. A fervent, darkly funny tale of an ongoing, stumbling conversion, Redeemed's mesmerizing voice and piercing honesty will touch readers whatever their beliefs.

'Rather than offering easy epiphanies and candy-coated narratives, King's book is as honest and raw as the model of the spiritual memoir, the Confessions of St. Augustine . . . Kind is nonjudgmental, generous and insightful about the spiritual journey.' Los Angeles Times
