Abstract

This thesis is a novel in 28 chapters, an original work of fiction that explores the perspective of a young woman's coming of age in a family whose values she grows to reject. Set in contemporary Alabama, the story includes elements of boar hunting, a mission trip to Cairo, and a few morrally ambiguous decisions from people she loves and respects.
