See you in September by Charity Norman
From our very own author in residence in the Hawkes Bay
This book examines the effect of an adult joining a cult, from all angles and characters involved, from the parents to the cult members and extended family.
Cassie picks the temporary shelter of a commune over her boyfriend’s company whom she is having difficulties with. Gethsemanne is a New Zealand retreat set in the bush, practising self- sufficiency, its’ leader Justin a mysterious figure that lives on an island. The “note” that starts each chapter are instructions on ”how to run a cult”.
A complex examination of how and why cults work and the human faces of all involved.
