The Hallelujah Side: A Novel

'“Characters burst into reality from The Hallelujah Side holding tambourines and Das Kapital and tubes of Tangerine Kiss lipstick in their hands. Rhoda Huffey depicts Roxanne Fish’s struggle to grow up in her radically evangelical family with humor and see-through-you insight. Every reader will be rooting for Roxy to open her throat and sing her own unique soul in her amazing ‘porkchop’ voice.” —Sena Jeter Naslund, author of Ahab’s Wife“This is a wonderful book. It’s wonderful! I loved the people and sympathized with their idealism, even their metaphysics. And the author’s mastery of structural conjunctions in the story is a revelation.” —Louis B. Jones, author of Ordinary Money“Rhoda Huffey makes the Assembly of God Church in 1950s Ames, Iowa, seem like the most magical place on earth. Her wisdom and love for her characters glow from every hilarious page.” —Oakley Hall, author of Ambrose Bierce and the Queen of Spades“Brimming with humor and wisdom, The Hallelujah Side is a wondrous tale told through the eyes of a precocious and charmingly earnest nine-year-old girl. With observations as sharp and honest as tempered steel, Roxanne Fish will make you laugh even as your heart breaks. Rhoda Huffey has written an infinitely fascinating and memorable novel.” —Connie May Fowler, author of Remembering Blue  '
