Description

Mormonia: Stories (Audiobook) written and performed by Jeff Von Ward

About Mormonia

You’ve never met anyone quite like the Bowler family before—or are they the Wrights or the Christensens? Von Ward’s seven short stories introduce us to three generations of a large and disparate family of Mormons, indelible characters whose ideas and expectations are frequently upended; but always with a knowing-eye, a tenderness and real affection.

Praise for Mormonia

“These stories are absolutely gorgeous. Von Ward’s writing is lyrical and graceful, finely wrought. This book is absolutely deserving of a wide audience.”

“We greet each reappearance of a character as we would an old friend, and while the customs and traditions detailed are new to anyone outside the Mormon faith, we are swept up in them as if we’ve practiced all our lives. When we depart these characters’ world, what remains with us is not their cultural oddities, but their aching humanity.”

“I was captivated… the author and I are fellow travelers, having both spent more time than we could afford living in Mormonland.”

“Von Ward’s stories move interestingly through time, and manage to take in something of an epic sweep. The scenes are compelling and surprising.”
