Kate Young Caley

Memoir

Kate Young Caley is a writer and college professor. She is the author of The House Where the Hardest Things Happened: A Memoir About Belonging. In this memoir, Caley details her search for a spiritual home after her family was expelled from their fundamentalist church, and ponders the big religious questions—relationships with God, an inclusive theology, and despair—in the context of her own life. Caley's memoir has been praised by Kirkus Reviews as "a thoughtful, luminous addition to the literature of faith."
