Promising his aunt to avoid all Mormons, Chris Kerry came to Utah to get an education — and nothing else. But with the help of some friendly neighbors and eccentric coworkers, Chris uncovers a truth that stitches together his lost heritage in a way he never imagined. This hilarious, moving novel illuminates how we recognize truth even in the most trying of circumstances.
I read your book in 5 days. I found this novel to be one I would share with any age group. It was something that kept the readers attention very well. For me, it sucked me right in the story with some experiences that I had in my younger years. Nothing as drastic as Chris’s at home in Houston. The Rogue Shop was real to me and your description of the characters made them real also. I could even hear and smell the boiler in the basement. The story was great because I got to know Eva and Stan, Travis, Kelly and Angie and Chris. In every business, somewhere, somehow, there is a little closet hanky panky going on which leads to uncomfortable consequences. The best part of the book for me was that Chris actually found himself when he made the decision to move away from home and go to college in Salt Lake City. He made a great impression on two young ladies, his boss Stan Parks and saved the life of good friend Eva. Thank you Mike for making this story of The Rogue Shop, so real. It is a good read while listening to the Tabernacle Choir Mens chorus.
