    It's 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her 30s, she has a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby - and she doesn't want any of it. A bitter divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she emerges battered and bewildered and realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance.

    Overall

    Listening to this book is like having your best girlfriend tell you of her struggles, insights, intimate adventures and more. Her account makes you feel a close connection to her and all the characters in her story for ever. Warmly narrated, insightfully written, encouraging and humane. I do feel enriched by listening to Liz's story. Thank you Liz for sharing!

    Story

    Leaving the Saints is an unforgettable memoir about one woman's spiritual quest and journey toward faith. As "Mormon royalty" within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Martha Beck was raised in a home frequented by the Church's high elders, known as the apostles, and her existence was framed by their strict code of conduct.

    What did you love best about Leaving the Saints?

    This book is my first deeper insight into the LDS. For me it is a great account of a story of spiritual search and is universal to a degree. During my own spiritual search I found that most, if not all churches and spiritual groups claim to have the Truth but often then do not practice what they preach and I guess many people might be going through some of Martha???s experience as we speak...
    My own search for Faith almost 20 years ago, as a teen of post-communist Eastern Europe, led me to became a Baha???i, as the Baha???i faith rang True to me afirming that all Religions come from the same source???none is better than the other???God simply sends different Teachers according to the need of the time.

    Also using the learnings from beeing sexualy abused to serve other victims of it is a truly courageous experience...
    I admire the courage, detachment, sincerity and insight of the account.
    Thanks for sharing it Martha!


    Have you listened to any of Bernadette Dunne???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I have but loved her reading!
