    Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org - the church's highest ministry - speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.

    What made the experience of listening to Beyond Belief the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Third Sister in the Tao family, Ailin has watched her two older sisters go through the painful process of having their feet bound. In China in 1911, all the women of good families follow this ancient tradition. Ailin rebels and refuses to follow this torturous tradition. But as she enters adolescence, Ailin finds that her family is no longer willing to support her. With a bold conviction and an indomitable spirit, Ailin is determined to forge her own destiny. Her story is a tribute to all those women whose courage created new options for the generations who came after them.

    What did you love best about Ties That Bind, Ties That Break?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Tradition - it's not for everyone.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    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.
