Dear Librarians,

Celia's family is hardworking and industrious, but that isn't enough. When Celia's father suffers an injury and is unable to work, the family begins to crack. Celia's mother loses her job soon afterward.

In an effort to cope Celia's parents become more active in their church, led by the charismatic young preacher Barrett Higgins. They become enthralled with his warnings of the Second Coming of Christ and an upcoming revolution against the secular world. When the family loses their house they move onto Barrett's compound. There, in the heart of a growing and powerful cult, Celia begins to realize the horrible truth behind the pastor's teachings.

Enjoy the novel Kirkus Reviews says "deftly unpacks the cunning charm of the cult leader," and calls a "striking account of religious opportunism."

Best,
Kennedy Weible
