I have just finished the book written by celeste, juliana, and kristina. i just felt i ahd to say something and speak out at how grateful i am that i have had the chance to read their story, i personally know how difficult it is to remember, talk and make public there past.
i am from England and have not been in any cults and relegions, i was baptised a catholic as a child and went to catholic scools that was my mothers choice and not mine. When my daughter is old enough i beleive it is up to her what she beleives, i just wanted to say that i was inspired by this book because when i was younger my dad abused both me and my sister and then later in life my mother had another child who was abused by someone else. Although it went to court and we had compensation and my dad is not allowed to contact me i have only ever told close freinds and obviously most my family know. Not without my sister has given me the courage to say in this article for the first time that any one can read it because if celste, kristine and juliana can then i can too. Thank you for writing this book it is an inspiration even for some like me who has never really known anything about cults or relegious groups. I also wanted to well done to anyone else who was managed to break free because its a vicious circle that is meant to make you feel like you can not cope alone which is used in many manipulative reletionships the difference between the children of god and a abusive reletionship is that children of go is on a larger scale.
