    I was very disappointed in this book While I feel for the people who got caught up in the events it details, I think that it fails both as an account of those events and as published work The first and most obvious issue with the book is that it is extremely poorly edited and put together There are issues with punctuation that are completely inexcusable for a self published work, let alone a book that has been put out through a small press If one sentence in a book erroneously ended in a comma, that would be one thing, but it happens time and time again here It also seems like no substantive editing has taken place One author has a background in journalism and the other in copy writing, but this writing experience is not evident in the pages The third sentence in the book is I know its occurrence will have put the fear of Pastor Pryor into my wife and as I leap to my feet like the man possessed I have become I am sweating instantly This is a very early example of the uncomfortable sentence structure that fills the entire book It s extremely hard to read and I feel like a strong editing hand would have helped a lot and a ghost writer would have helped even If the book s content was what I had hoped for and, indeed, what the book s cover suggests , I might have been able to look past the presentation After all, this is a true story, and I tend to allow some leeway in those situations The trouble is, there is so much material here that isn t relevant to the cult it is supposed to be about There are chunks detailing irrelevancies from the brothers childhoods, chunks about completely unrelated family members and a repeated need to emphasise the fact that they re distantly related to Virginia Woolf If it were described as a dual autobiography, I suppose that would all be fair enough, but it is supposed to be the true story of surviving 16 years in a destructive cult Even then, it might be fair enough if there were actually any in depth discussion of that true story Everything is told in riddles, however It s a bit like stream of consciousness the Woolf influence, perhaps but not quite Most of the time it is a straightforward first person POV, but then it switches to one brother speaking to the other There are even a couple of sections from one wife s point of view, although she isn t given a writing credit I think the main thing any reader of a book about a cult wants to learn is WHY And that isn t addressed here at all at least not successfully After three hundred pages, I still have no idea why people decided that Violet Pryor was God and why they decided to do stupid things on her behalf I don t know why they didn t as the Christians that they profess to be see the inaccuracies in her so called Christian teachings, or why they didn t just roll their eyes when Pryor claimed all of their money for herself, then holed herself up in a mansion for years where they waited on her every luxurious need without ever actually seeing or speaking to her I wanted to have sympathy for David Ayliffe, and the other people who followed Violet, but I can t I was not shown cause for fear, although I was told it existed Worse still, it turns out that David was Violet s right hand man, who carried on the church long after Violet was dead Despite this, he is presented as an innocent Perhaps if the book was better written and did a much better job of actually describing the brainwashing that Violet was supposed to have perpetrated I might have agreed I believe this was published by a Christian publisher and, if it was written for a Christian audience the Philip Yancey quote on the front certainly suggests it , I guess I understand the talk of John s conversion to Catholicism and the bible quotes throughout Perhaps it might have worked better as a pure account of two journeys towards mainstream religion As it is, it feels like it s trying to straddle the Christian testimony market and the secular cult market and failing This is a very long review, and I think the reason is that I feel bad for my negative impressions I feel like I need to justify my complete inability to sympathise with the authors, because it IS a true story and I m sure that a lot of people WERE hurt by Pryor and her teachings Ultimately, however, it is the author s job to make the reader sympathise with his characters, even when those characters are actually real life people If I come out of the reading experience judging Pryor s followers for their stupidity and Ayliffe for his right hand role in things, then it is the book that has led me to that place As an aside, the blurbs from notables inside the front cover is a fascinating insight into who you know being far important than how you write.

    Living parts of it was worse than writing it Can you recommend your own book on Goodreads Working with my brother on it though was very cathartic and brought a lot of healing to us both as we got to know each again.

    A very fascinating story I enjoyed reading the different perspectives and how family members were affected.
