“I couldn’t help but wonder what happened to souls who lost their place in this world.” – from Last Summer in Algonac


The summer of 1938 is idyllic for fourteen-year-old Dorothy Ann Reid. She’s spent every summer of her life visiting her grandparent’s home on the banks of the St. Clair River in Algonac, Michigan. But unbeknownst to her, this will be her last. As Dorothy and her family pass their time swimming, fishing, and boating, they are blissfully unaware that tragedy lurks just around the corner.


Last Summer in Algonac is a fictionalized account of the author’s grandmother and her family’s final summer before her father’s suicide, which altered their lives forever. Inspired by real people and events, Laurisa Reyes has woven threads of truth with imagination, creating a “what if” tale. No one living today knows the details leading to Bertram Reid’s death, but thanks to decades of letters, personal interviews, historical research, and a visit to Algonac, Reyes attempts to resolve unanswered questions, and provide solace and closure to the Reid family at last.

The Case for Calvary FRONT COVER.jpg

A new study on Christ's atonement just for Latter-day Saints:

• Where did Jesus Christ atone for our sins?

• Why don't Latter-day Saints display the cross?

• How can we prevent more youth from leaving the Church?

In The Case for Calvary, Laurisa Reyes delves into these and other challenging questions, relying on scripture and the testimonies of Latter-day prophets for answers which do not always agree with commonly held assumptions.

Concerned by a decades-old trend of exalting Gethsemane over Christ’s crucifixion, Reyes embarked on years of study to confirm what prophets old and new have taught. Her aim with this book is to clarify misunderstandings about the doctrine of atonement and to emphasize the necessity of gratitude for the Savior’s sacrifice on our behalf.
