The first person narrative of someone growing up in the church was captivating. I wanted to see how and why she decided to leave what she was raised to believe in.
This completely answers the question about whether it's a cult. All the signs are there. Of course, that also makes it difficult to distinguish from any other religion! Enlightening description of her experiences and what makes someone begin to question the things they've been told all their lives.
Fascinating story about how one girl managed to avoid having her feet bound. Explains the background of the custom, and why it became important, as well as how she avoided it and how that choice influenced her life. Once you start, you won't want to quit until it's over.
Tradition - it's not for everyone.
One of the few books I have read recently that I really didn't want to put down. Fascinating story, characters that you'll like - and identify with, at least in part. As the story unfolds, your view of them will shift in unexpected ways. You'll stay up way too late listening to this one.
