Summary

Cassy's a backpacking student travelling around New Zealand - until the day she accepts a lift in a van full of smiling strangers; her life is changed forever. She's soon entangled in Gethsemane, a community led by Justin Calvin, a visionary leader with a violent past. As Cassy falls under Gethsemane's spell, a new identity is built for her. But when her father's illness reunites her with her family, she's forced to confront the hidden darkness of her world.

Brilliant

Evocative and gripping - couldn't put it down (or turn it off).

Excellent story, excellent narration.

My only gripe -and it's a minor one- is that as a Kiwi, hearing New Zealand place names mangled by supposedly NZ characters is really jarring - wish the production team had done the ten minutes research necessary to sort that out in advance.

A fascinating, compelling read.

Really enjoyed this book so much so I finished it in two days! The book tells the story of Cassie/Cairo's decision to join a community and the impact this has on her family. The narrator did a wonderful job and brought Gethsemane alive, each and every inhabitant had their own voice.

I would recommend this book but I've detracted a star as I felt the ending was weak and predictable.

Gripping, original story, beautifully written

Charity Norman has done it again - a superb piece of highly original fiction which draws you in and demands your full attention until the very end. In this edition, with her skilfully drawn characters being given life by excellent narration, this book is a real triumph. Highly recommended.

Outstanding

It took a long time to get interesting as with all her book. The story about a religious cult set in an Beautiful island in New Zealand a-place that most of us would want to live in. It cover love and hate dictatorship. Thank you Charity can’t wait for your next book.

Page Turner, even in audio!

It was a great Page Turner, I loved it.

The plot was really original and drew me in early on.
