Sex cult nun : breaking away from the Children of God, a wild, radical religious cult

Summary

Summary: Growing up on an isolated farm in Macau, Jones was raised to be part a religious army preparing for the End Times. Thousands of members strong, the cult followers of the Children of God looked to her grandfather as their guiding light. Over decades the Children of God became notorious for its alarming sex practices and allegations of abuse and exploitation. When Jones broke away, at age twenty-three, she left behind everything she knew to forge her own path in America. Her memoir reflects our societal norms of oppression and abuse while providing an exploration of spiritual manipulation and our rights in our bodies. -- adapted from jacket
