A compelling novel about a cult where the women aren't allowed the freedom of choice and don’t have a voice. The oppression is so palpable and stifling.

The main character, Miriam, is a faithful follower until things go wrong in the marriage ceremony to Caleb. Will her inner voice get to be heard?

I truly enjoyed the relationship between Miriam and Aaron and the compassion Aaron shows to try to get Miriam to to open up about her life and inner thoughts she has not been able to share throughout her life. Caleb starts as a genuine enough dude who claims to have strong feeling for Miriam but as the story progresses he turns into a possessive, jealous and oppressive jerk that I wanted to strangle.

I truly enjoyed the diverse relationships between the characters and thought the writing was glorious
