    Kim McKimmie with Cara Wall

    Cara Wall is a graduate of the Iowa Writer's Workshop and Stanford University. While in Iowa, Cara taught fiction writing in the undergraduate creative writing department, as well as at the Iowa Young Writer's Studio, in her capacity of founder and inaugural director. She went on to teach middle school English and history. Cara has been published by Glamour, Salon, and the San Francisco Chronicle. She lives in New York City with her family. The Dearly Beloved is her first novel.

    In The Dearly Beloved, we follow two couples through decades of love and friendship, jealousy and understanding, forgiveness and commitment. Against the backdrop of turbulent changes facing the city and the church’s congregation, these four forge improbable paths through their evolving relationships, each struggling with uncertainty, heartbreak, and joy. A poignant meditation on faith and reason, marriage and children, and the ways we find meaning in our lives.

    For the author, the book is about faith — but despite being set in a church, she said it is not necessarily about religious faith. "It's a book about faith in ourselves and others," said Wall.

    Jenna Bush Hager selected The Dearly Beloved as her September book club selection - what an honor - and the reviews have been great!

    “Writing with restrained lyricism, Wall’s debut—15 years in the making—offers a kind of literary chamber music, combining the viewpoints of a quartet of characters across multiple decades and events. ” — Kirkus starred review
