We Are Called to Rise by Laura McBride.

We Are Called to Rise by Laura McBride.

“We Are Called to Rise” is a story about what defines community in modern-day America. It features four superficially diverse get fundamentally human and similar protagonists as well as interwoven plot-lines full of teachable moments. Of her creative process in writing this book, McBride said: “I started with the idea that I wanted to write a novel that would appeal to someone like me… My favorite novels are the ones where I fall into the story and I think about the characters. And I slow down at the end because I don’t wanna let go of them and I don’t want to let go of their lives.”
