Girl at the End of the World

Girl at the End of the World by Elizabeth Esther
This is the true story of Elizabeth Esther and her terrifying, deeply scary, and sad walk with a religious cult, known as The Assembly. This book was a quick, easy read.  It was deeply sad, but Elizabeth knows how to throw humor into these terrible things that she had to go through.  I really did feel extreme sadness and horror, but also laughed a lot!!

Although I did enjoy this book there are things that bothered me coming from a Christian publisher.  One issue was some of the language--I know it helped convey what the author was trying to say, but there are other ways to get your point across. Another issue I had was if I wasn't a strong woman of faith, this book probably would have scared me away from the Lord on all levels!  As a Christian publisher and author, I don't think that is the intention of the book, but it definitely came across as such. I would have liked to see more of how God has worked in Elizabeth's life since walking away from The Assembly.

I wold recommend this book to strong women and men of faith with deep Christian roots.  It is definitely eye-opening and a captivating read.

Waterbrook Publishing provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Please rate my review!
