Was away on annual visit to Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck. Two books to recommend, both as it happens by people raised in the Presbyterian church, which must be why I like both:
Consequence, by Eric Fair. Memoir of someone who had tours with our military and our contractors, with the major focus on interrogations in Iraq and religion.
Lab Girl, by Hope Jahren. Memoir of a woman growing from a high school science lab (great evocation of the sort of lab I remember) through a career as paleo/geo/botanist.
