"Ms. Smith possesses a fine talent for creating narrative voices, whether the ungrammatical eloquence of a hill-country healer or the educated affectations of a Richmond gentleman." (The New York Times Book Review)
"A compelling journey into all matters southern and spiritual." (The Boston Globe)

"Not (just) for Christians"
I really like the character of Grace and the straightforward way she tells the story of her bizarre (to me) life in a Christian Cult. More than about any particular religion, it is about how are lives are shaped by the beliefs of those around us.
"a great story teller"
this story is not for young children adult situations leaves the judgement of the ending up to the reader very human story not typical
I read this book a couple of monthes ago but I just can't get it of my mind. I feel as though I know the families envolved personally. The book was great and brought to life by Christina Moore, I would recomend this to everyone. 2 thumbs up
"it's just religious voyeurism"
while well written the story is simply voyeurism on a strange corner of religious habit. there is no resolution and Grace isn't saved
No way would I read another book by Lee Smith.
I have listened to books by Christina Moore and enjoyed them but I can't honestly remember anything about her reading of this book because I was so put off with the story.
Presenting this as a Christian book was so misleading. I kept hoping it would turn a corner, but it only got worse. I wish I had read the other comments before buying it.
"Don't waste your time"
I wish I had spent my time on a much more worthy book. It did not leave me uplifted, inspired or motivated. The religion in this book was not true Christianity even though the characters talked about Jesus. It was closer to some sort of cult. There was some filthy language and some disgusting sexual situations as well. I'm taking time to write this review in the hope that I will save someone from wasting their time on this book.
"not a good read"
I couldn't finish it. It was very slow, and I didn't like the way portrayed Christians.
