I picked this up at the supermarket...and hid it from the partner as I was so excited and didn't want to have to fight to read this book!! I wrote on my In My Mailbox #2 about this and how I was half way through and really excited to finish this..
Unfortunately I wish I hadn't finished the book! Really shocking to say, but I was loving this book and I picked it up due to the difference in the subject matter. I usually read books involving true life stories and overcoming issues, i.e. depression, self-harm, eating disorders and battles people have to face. This book from the description just seemed different. Yes she had a battle to face but it was very different to the books I usually read and as Religion is a taboo subject I was excited.
The first half of the book I spent it enjoying the story, loving the child like innocence of Lindsey and just how much power the sect had over these people! I think one of my favourite passages involved her running outside her front door without her hair covered, and how she felt so scared she was doing wrong.
At the middle point I wasn't able to stop reading the book and was attempting to eat and cook while reading! Then...It just changed into a usual life story book. Usually there's nothing wrong with that for me, as I'm expecting it...but this...I don't know I think I just hoped for more.
I did finish the book but I was severely put off after I realised the subject had changed, It is a good book! I just hoped it was all going to be about the religious sect and her battles with that as it was suggested...
