An immigrant boy whose family is struggling to assimilate. A middle-aged housewife coping with an imploding marriage and a troubled son. A social worker at home in the darker corners of Las Vegas. A wounded soldier recovering from an injury he can't remember getting. By the time we realize how these voices will connect, the impossible and perhaps the unbearable has already happened. We Are Called to Rise is a boomtown tale, in which the lives of people from different backgrounds and experiences collide in a stunning coincidence. When presented the opportunity to sink into despair, these characters rise. Through acts of remarkable charity and bravery, they rescue themselves. Emotionally powerful yet tender and intimate, We Are Called to Rise is a novel of redemption and unexpected love.

Yes, this novel could be depressing, or
maybe the correct word is challenging.
The Nate character wasn't sympathetic
at all. But maybe that's what made this
book so compulsively readable: I wanted to know what happens next. Well-written, although it does drag a bit in spots, thought-provoking and sad at times and with generally well drawn
characters.

A terribly depressing book! There was no inspiration to read the next chapter after struggling with the one before. Tried several chapters with little interest.
