<p>In <em>Kind of Kin</em> by award-winning author Rilla Askew, when a church-going, community-loved, family man is caught hiding a barn-full of illegal immigrant workers, he is arrested and sent to prison. This shocking development sends ripples through the town—dividing neighbors, causing riffs amongst his family, and spurring controversy across the state.</p><p>Using new laws in Oklahoma and Alabama as inspiration, <em>Kind of Kin</em> is a story of self-serving lawmakers and complicated lawbreakers, Christian principle and political scapegoating.</p><p>Rilla Askew’s funny and poignant novel explores what happens when upstanding people are pushed too far—and how an ad-hoc family, and ultimately, an entire town, will unite to protect its own.</p>
