Publisher's Summary

Katie was born into a cult. Her family lived there for generations. As she got older, she realized the Elders were keeping secrets from the community. Risking everything, she leaves the cult and searches for the truth.
With the help of outsiders, Katie and her young husband David are put in touch with an organization called Purple Haven, which provides medical care, shelter, counseling and job training to individuals who have escaped from cults. She soon discovers she’s pregnant. With the help of her husband, her therapist, and two friends, Katie learns what it means to have a relationship with God.

Very Interesting Topic

This book made me realize how much people who have been involved or raised in a cult can suffer and the changes that they need to face in order to escape the cult. I hope that transitional places like Purple Haven do exist somewhere and bring hope to those who need it!

Even-though I would have preferred a female voice for this type of book, Rick Barr’s narration was great!

I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!

Very religious but not preaching

I'm not a fan of organized religion so I generally avoid books that are heavily based on religion, but the cult aspect of this story intrigued me so I decided to give it a go. I'm really glad that I did, while religion played a large role in the story I didn't feel like it was trying to convert me, it felt like a natural part of the story being told.

I found it fascinating to get a glimpse of what it's like to grow up in a cult and the challenges that arise when you start questioning what you're being told is truth. The journey that Katie and David go through as they build their lives outside of Zion is touching. Their young age makes the challenges they face even more compelling and I couldn't help but desperately want everything to work out for them.

Beautifully written, rich in emotion, this was a book I could not stop listening to.

The narration only added to an already brilliant book, the character voices were really well done and the delivery matched the emotions and tensions of the story.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
