About this book:

After matric Lesley took a gap year to the United States. Before she left, her mother, in jest or premonition, said: “Don't get married and don't join a cult” - but Lesley ended up in what is considered one of the most dangerous existing cults in America. In this book Lesley shares the story of her life-changing years with this group - living out of a backpack, an arranged marriage to a Brother, having home births, threats of losing her children and surviving in strange, glorious ways.
