Teaser Tuesday Two

Just got Secrets of Eden by Chris Bohjalian in the mail. I loved Midwives and The Double Bind so I'm very excited to start reading this. So, my teaser today:

"In theory, I knew a very great deal about prayer, so praying shouldn't have been all that difficult. I had studied it at seminary, I had read all the right books."

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
