Day Two Hundred Twenty: "Every Tongue Shall Confess" by ZZ Packer


Drama unfolds in a southern church where women are obviously looked down upon and objectified and where secrets are kept about them and between them in order to protect a few of the elders of the church.

This short story was a bit long for my taste, particularly when I didn't feel that the length did anything to add to the story necessarily. However, the use of voice was wonderful here even if the story itself lost my interest. I'd give this author another chance just for that.
