Told from different points of view, Bountiful deftly takes you inside the minds and hearts of a mother and daughter whose perspectives will seem both familiar and new.
With all five of her children now grown, devout Mormon and lifelong homemaker Nedra Walker is surprised to find her ambitions ignited by an open seat representing Bountiful in the Utah state legislature - an unexpected political turn after decades of domestic life. Nedra's second daughter, Heather - single, nearing thirty, and freshly returned to Utah after years away for graduate school - is pulled into her mother's campaign for office. But despite her best efforts, Heather's progressive political stances create ongoing conflicts with her mother and threaten her first real (and, she worries, her last) chance for a successful LDS marriage. All of which makes Heather question what she really wants anyway.
Charming, sympathetic, and spiritually insightful, Bountiful is an insider perspective on family and faith, with Nedra and Heather each forced to decide what is worth fighting to change and what is ultimately worth fighting to hold on to.
