MY REVIEW

This book is a real eye opener into a cult that was operating as a legitimate church. Young Zenovia and her mother Audrey are invited to join a new fellowship called the Brethren, and they are drawn into a community that practices a very warped idea of religion.

They had no idea what hold the elders of the new group would have on them, as they were forced to follow the doctrines made up the elders, not by God. Failure to live up to these rules meant being cast out and shunned by other members of the group.

Families were torn apart, and friendships and support systems were stripped away. Zenovia was forbidden to attend University, as her life was to be entirely devoted to the Brethren and their beliefs. She chose to "rebel" and give up all that was dear to her, in her pursuit for a future for herself.

This is a great story of searching for truth, forgiveness and acceptance.
