I’ve always been intrigued by small religious communities: the Amish, the Mennonites, etc. who seemingly live in their own time and space. The author does a great job in this book with setting the scene. While reading this book, I too was walking around the compound of The Church of Fire and Brimstone and God’s Almighty Baptizing Wind. I was very angry at whoever wrote the description on the back of the novel however, as they gave away events in the story that don’t happen until well into half the novel. Even so, I enjoyed the story of Ninah and was rooting for her the whole way through.
