Christine Terp Madsen is a writer working on a novel and memoir. Her novel, Let Me Take You Home, is set in the Armenian community in Watertown, Mass. It is the story of a lonely, 35-year-old woman who changes her life in the most extraordinary way, interwoven with the story of the Armenian genocide. Her memoir, Sufficient Grace: How Christian Science Healed Me of Christian Science, is about her dozen years in the Christian Science church, and how a rumor campaign that she is a lesbian destroyed her career as a journalist. She lives in Vermont with her partner of 35 years and their 18-year-old son.
