The Kneeling Bus depicts Carrie Willis's coming-of-age as a minister's daughter in 1950s Florida. Hilarious and often magical, it chronicles a lifetime of the small shames and deep mortifications felt by a narrator who once dreamed herself into the mission field of the Congo--before she lost her nerve.
