(RNS) — Kiersten White had a happy, protected childhood. Growing up in Highland, Utah, the award-winning novelist attended a high school that was 96% Mormon. She descended from pioneers who crossed the plains in the 1800s to live out their religion. Every part of her life was informed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“I was a true believer,” she told Religion News Service in a Zoom interview. “Absolutely with my whole heart, I believed everything, and tried to live everything to exact standards.” For her, that meant going to school at Brigham Young University, where she met her future spouse the very first week. They got married in the temple two weeks after her 19th birthday and had their first child just before she turned 21.
