Can a well-educated woman, a California English teacher no less, go from a high-school classroom into a rural church pulpit in a place where there are no other ministers of her gender, no signs of educated life and what looks to her like a desolate landscape? Mrs. Ogg Played the Harp, a charming memoir, answers those questions.
This highly personal story tells how a woman minister faces community bias against women in church leadership as she tries to be a person of God. Her marriage needs repair and her heart has been broken, but she is comforted by the good will and beauty she finds in Arizona people and in the land itself.
