When a young woman becomes pregnant in a religious sect, how far will she go to escape the abusive leader and save the people she loves?
The Brotherhood – safe haven or prison?
After her parents’ sudden death, a grieving Melissa falls back on her faith and into the welcoming arms of a religious sect. Captivated by their leader, Dominic, she leaves her old life behind and moves to the countryside to join them.
But life in The Brotherhood is not as safe as it first appeared. When engineer Mark joins The Brotherhood, Melissa finds herself conflicted between her growing feelings for him and her crush on Dominic. With their leader’s initial encouragement, Melissa and Mark grow close. But as her haven becomes a prison, Melissa’s newfound happiness is destroyed by Dominic’s jealousy. How can she escape and save the ones she loves?
After her parents died, Melissa is at her most vulnerable, after her parents die, her new friend Dominic is someone to help her with the heartbreak and stress, as she feels someone is following her.
She joins The Brotherhood as she feels this could help….but she is more fearful here that she was before….just what is going on ?
A very thought provoking book, an interesting view on how vulnerable people can get drawn in to a cult…..Dominic is an emotional ‘vampire’, feeding on people’s sadness, fears and hopes…but really only thinking about himself…..a brilliantly unsettling read.
