In strikingly assured poems of formal and informal grace, Laura Cok's Doubter's Hymnal explores the compelling nature of faith and its loss and the shifting dynamics of family life. Steering clear of sentimentality, Cok has created a mirror in this marvelous debut, in which we can all recognize a little of ourselves.
