Growing up Southern and Baptist in Eastern Kentucky, Elizabeth Hancock's world revolved around Sunday School, foreign missions projects, revival meetings and of course, the Kentucky Wildcats, who "glorified God through their goal-shattering, soul-shattering play." Hancock chronicles her childhood misadventures with sardonic wit, detailing her and her sister Meg's mischievous - if harmless - abuses of power (demanding to be baptized in blue jeans, or lecturing their peers that "bugs are a Biblical plague, and that means anyone who gets head lice is getting paid back by God for something they did") and lovingly recalling the wisdom imparted by her long-suffering parents as they minister to their unruly flock. TRESPASSERS introduces the quirky and unforgettable denizens of Elizabeth's childhood - Aunt Vaney and the hundreds of Christmas cards that decorated her living room, next door neighbor Mary Anna and her mysterious Catholic ways, Ginny and Geneva Gordon, twin ex-debutante Little Lambs Sunday School teachers - and marks the arrival of a talented new voice in a coming of age story that is by turns comical and affecting.
