My Soul, and Other Broken Things traces the coming-of-age of Sephora, a young woman who, guided by a mysterious stranger, returns to her Christian fundamentalist home in search of her estranged mother. Sephora has been living a life that is repugnant to her family and all that they believe. Sephora takes us with her on a journey that plumbs the darkest depths of the human soul, asking the ever-present question: "Is there a God?"

"How do you know what's going on between God and me? You only know what you think you see or hear or read in a dusty old book. And you're completely holed up in the idea that the world is black and cold and evil. Like the only way to survive this place is to hide in some special bubble of God's light. Why won't you let me find my own way?" -Sephora
