Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson

Based steadily on Jeanette Winterson’s own life experiences growing up as a lesbian within an English Pentecostal community. Christianity (and religions in general) and the LGBTQ+ community have had what one would call a serpentine relationship with one another. Over history, many people have experienced abuse and bigotry from people claiming it was because it was what taught religious, but especially through what Christianity taught. Winterson’s actual story is not too different from this tale, but the character does finds her own kind of faith while staying true to her identity.
