It was hard for me to believe that something this crazy actually happened. As I was reading, it sounded like some kind of a sensational thriller, almost. And as I told my coworkers about this book, they were convinced it was something I'd seen on tv.

It was an interesting, astounding read. I couldn't help but feel like the author's portrayal of her parents was idealized in many ways - especially at the beginning of the book. I suppose we're all a bit guilty of that when we remember "the good old days.". Then the last chapter or so was super preachy. I was OK with all of the bible quotes throughout the book, after all her dad was a preacher and it makes sense for the story. I just felt that the last little bit was overkill and it really turned me off from the story.

Overall it's an OK book. It could be made into a movie. I doubt it's one I'd read again. I'd only recommend it for those that aren't completely turned off by all things religion.
