Wow-great insider's view!

Hill's delivery of such a horrific adolescence was beautiful. The shocking details were given without making you hate the church or the religion during the story. Hearing the insiders view of this cult life helps explain why there is so much controversy over the religion and why stars are so drawn to it. I couldn't stop listening!
