A brilliant insight into a shocking hidden world. A story I wish was fiction.
on 17 July 2014
This important book had me gripped from the start & I read it within 24 hours.
You feel instantly connected to lovely Natacha & from the opening pages you will strongly be willing her & the other children to quickly find a safe & happy ending, far away from this dangerous cult with its outrageous rules. It is well written & whether talking about her childhood, teens, or adulthood, you sense you are reading through Natacha’s eyes at that particular age.
Natacha has bravely told her story of the cruel, perverse, deeply unfair, & hidden world of being part of ‘The Family’ cult. I deeply feel for Natacha for her lost childhood & the consequent after-effects, & for all the other children whose innocence was crushed by cruel &/or ignorant, indoctrinated adults.
Whilst shocking to read, it is an important book that will hopefully raise much awareness & help to stop other children being stripped of their innocence in a similar way, as well as adults gullibly being indoctrinated by this or a similar other dangerous organisation.
I have maximum respect for this very brave & inspirational lady. I wish Natacha & her siblings all the best for a very happy, safe, long, & fun-filled future with lots more sunny days at beaches, endless biscuits, unlimited coca-cola, & everything else they should have enjoyed as children.
