As a former Jehovah’s Witness myself, I can attest to the facts that Nancy Sage shares in her story. Her family was fortunate that Nancy was willing to take on the task of breaking the grip that held her daughter in the cult. This is a story that must be read and shared with anyone thinking of becoming a Jehovah’s Witness… – J.A.H.
This book is a great story of risk, love, and chance. I am glad to read the happy ending. This is just another glimpse inside of the J.W. cult. The depth of mind control is appalling. It is sad that families are destroyed in the name of “religion”… – R.J.M
This book was great. The author was to the point in describing her experiences with the Jehovah’s Witnesses. My only criticism was that it was too short. Maybe one day she will write a longer version of the book with more detail. Even so, for this version it was easy to feel the emotions this mother was going through… – A.D.
I was deeply impressed with this Mother and Dad’s devotion to their daughter. How the Mom was willing to submit herself to a high control religious organization like the Jehovah’s Witnesses to get reinstated. Love moves us to do many thing but this Mom really took the extra step to save her daughter and her granddaughters… – R.B.
This is a wonderful story about a real life event. Ms. Sage does the unthinkable and goes back to Jehovah’s Witnesses so she may rescue her daughter. Only if one is truly acquainted with the cult of Jehovah’s Witnesses can one appreciate the delicate nature of such an adventure. Ms. Sage not only had to fool the members of various congregations in order to accomplish her task but she had to have a will of steel not to get absorbed once again in the Witness culture… – T.L.
The extreme form of shunning that Jehovah’s Witnesses are forced to practice on anyone, including life long friends and family members, is heartless, cruel and not based on the what the scriptures actually say. In reality, this extreme form of shunning is not to “keep the congregation clean”, but to try to limit contact with anyone the Organization deems as a threat… – T.
