I now want to read everything else Stott has written, especially her two historical novels and two nonfiction books about Darwin. When a sex scandal tore the Exclusive Brethren apart in 1970, her father pulled the family out of the cult. I feel fortunate that the religion I was raised in, though cultish in some respects, never took advantage of its members in such crass and offensive ways. Even though it might not seem that light out, you’ll still get some exposure to UV rays, which can help regulate your body’s circadian rhythm and boost your mood. I think the "Before" section is pretty heavy going, especially with the amount of family history that is included, but the other two sections make this book so important, and a very worthwhile read.

Marcus Rashford 'went on a 12-hour tequila bender in Belfast' as he was spotted in nightclub last week. While finding this bizarre, and the rules the group was to follow continually changing, I didn't find it much different than any other book I've read of extreme fundamentalist Christian sects that shun others and become more strict as the group becomes smaller, and there are threats from within especially when the Rapture dates kept changing. Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field. Suffice it to say that it's sad that, in a world where autocrats like Vladimir Putin can run roughshod over his own countrymen and those of neighboring countries, some people willingly allow themselves and their loved ones to be treated in a similar way, i.
