Sara Adams awakes blind, unable to remember the most basic details of her life, but her darkness seems a blessing when she discovers the terrors of The Light.
Stella Montgomery investigates the news from the mean streets of Detroit, where she's noticed a disturbing trend: Young women are vanishing. When her best friend disappears, Stella digs for answers - despite warnings from her police detective boyfriend - following a twisted trail that leads her through the city's most dangerous and forsaken precincts. There she uncovers something more sinister than she could have imagined: a shadowy organization known as The Light, led by the enigmatic Father Gabriel.
As Sara struggles to understand her place in the strange world she's awakened to - an oppressive cult demanding unquestioning obedience - and her feelings for Jacob, the husband she can't recall and whose harsh and tender attentions confuse and beguile her, Stella risks all to discover the truth. But enlightenment always comes with a price....

Very thought provoking... And disturbing...
I think all of the narrators gave an excellent performance.
Wow. This is one of those books that makes you sit back and think "What would I do?". It is so realistic that it stays with you after you have completed the book. It's kind of like the Stepford Wives meet a religious zealot. The story unfolds through Sara, her "husband" Jacob and reporter Stella whose friend went missing a year earlier. Sara and Jacob live in a community where wives are whipped with a belt for infractions of the rules - like asking questions about their husband 's decisions. About half way through I thought I had it figured out but I was WRONG!
Book is Excellent and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
