Have some coffee… or I’ve got iced tea, do you like sweet or unsweet?… and take a seat. Let’s visit.
If you’re here for my books, you’re in the right place! You can find all of them on Amazon:
Also, The Fellowship and Go Right are available on my Bookbaby bookshop (links also in the sidebar).
If you’ve come to the blog to see what I have to say, I discuss issues that I write about: writing, reading, common-sense relationships, womanhood, marriage, Christian authoritarianism, patriarchy, recovery from legalism, coming to terms with racism, and just being a good person.
You can find me on Facebook as Sara Roberts Jones Author; but that page isn’t very active because I didn’t feel like playing Facebook’s engagement game.
Check under the Writing > Blogging menu above to find links to posts I’ve written elsewhere.
And thanks for dropping in. I hope you’ll stay with me!

This sounds right up my alley. I’ve been struggling to recover from a childhood of ultra conservatism and scarring religion that misconstrued my view of God. I look forward to reading more by you.
You’ve got it harder than me. I didn’t get into this world till I was fourteen, so I had other experiences to contrast with it. I hope you stick around. Your perspective will be very helpful. Can I get you sweet tea or unsweet? 🙂

I plan to stick around! 🙂 I’ve been trying to write about my experiences also, but it dredges up painful memories. I’m hoping that writing about it will help me be able to process it all and bring clarity.
Hi Sara, I just finished binge reading your novel last night! I couldn’t believe how similar the experiences were to my growing up and and early married life! I am recovering from a spiritually abusive ministry, as well as family. The fear of being out from under authority was very great and it took a lot for my husband and I to leave. The book reminded me a lot of our group. The girl’s house on campus was a lot like my year of “seminary” experience overseas for a year. Thank you for writing this! I am so happy to be free and living in grace instead of rules and fear. Also, I love your blog. It’s awesome.
Thank you, Christy! I tried to write a story that would capture many experiences, not just the group I was familiar with. That fear is almost invisible to outsiders, but so very real.
I’m glad you’re “out” and rebuilding a life in grace. And glad you took the time to comment here!
