In 1977 the world reeled in horror when 912 people were found dead in the African country of Guyana where the Reverend Jim Jones had taken his followers. In this book the author recounts her life, along with her husband and her children, as a member of the Peoples Temple for six years; and, how, when they finally defected they agitated for his church to be investigated. Why did they stay in the church, when in retrospect it was a cult rife with corruption, horror, sexual predation and child abuse? This book is an attempt to answer that very question.
