Priest Kid follows the protagonist of the story, Sarah. Sarah is a graduate student who is studying at Stanford University, and during Easter break, she decides to go visit her parents which is what is due as she did not visit them at Christmas; much to her parent’s displeasure. Sarah is a woman who loves her mother Alex, but their relationship is hazy and full of tension thanks to their difference in beliefs. Alex is an Episcopal Priest, and Sarah resents this, she has always felt a little distant from her mother as she has never been able to fully have her to herself. Alex is always busy, always working and always preaching her beliefs to Sarah and this has caused underlining issues in their relationship. Sarah and Alex have obvious differences in belief, especially as Sarah is studying Psychology which is not considered suitable in religious terms but there is also a massive, new fundamental difference between them and that is that Sarah has fallen in love with a woman. What ensues next is a timeless story about one young woman’s journey to discover herself, and it makes for a poignant, incredible book that should not be missed.
The story of Priest Kid is a deeply profound one that examines the mother/daughter relationship through the eyes of two fictional characters, Alex and Sarah. Alex and Sarahs’s relationship is one that many daughters and mothers will be able to relate to. This is because there are many tensions in families but especially between mothers and daughters. I admire the author, Lyralen Kaye for writing this story in the hope that it will implore readers to think about their own relationship with their mother and or family members while also entertaining them with a quick, snappy, compelling story.
Lyralen Kaye is an exceptional author who clearly has a talent for writing poignant stories as well as fantastic characters. The creation of Alex and Sarah and their mother/daughter relationship is one that thrilled me as well as entertained me. What struck me early on in the novel was how believable they are as a pairing. Their narratives jumped off the page and into my heart and kept me turning the pages very quickly. This is, of course, thanks to Kaye’s talent at characterization as well as prose. The prose within Priest Kid is astounding and will compel all readers.
As Prest Kid is a stunning piece of fiction that should not be missed, I have no choice but to award this book a dazzling Five Stars! So please, if you are a reader who adores poignant fiction then Priest Kid is not to be missed!
