Description

This is the story of Jeanette, adopted and brought up by her mother as one of God's elect. Zealous and passionate, she seems seems destined for life as a missionary, but then she falls for one of her converts.

At sixteen, Jeanette decides to leave the church, her home and her family, for the young woman she loves. Innovative, punchy and tender,

Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is a few days ride into the bizarre outposts of religious excess and human obsession.

    Biggest load of confusing rubbish I've read in a long time
  • Irony Oranges and biblical miscellany

    This is an unusual tale of a harrowing childhood ... Faith Hope and Love twisted into something sad and strange. Well written but sometimes a bit too heavily ironic.
