Publisher's Summary

When a young woman leaves her family - and the civilized world - to join an off-the-grid community headed by an enigmatic leader, she discovers that belonging comes with a deadly cost, in this lush and searing debut novel.

At 19, Berie encounters a seductive and mysterious man at a bus station near her home in North Carolina. Shut off from the people around her, she finds herself compelled by his promise of a new life. He ferries her into a place of order and chaos: the Ash family farm. There, she joins an intentional community living off the fertile land of the mountains, bound together by high ideals and through relationships she can’t untangle. Berie - now renamed Harmony - renounces her old life and settles into her new one on the farm. She begins to make friends. And then they start to disappear.

Thrilling and profound, The Ash Family explores what we will sacrifice in the search for happiness and the beautiful and grotesque power of the human spirit as it seeks its ultimate place of belonging.

Great Book

The book as a whole was wonderful, it had me guessing what was going to happen next. I really wished it had ended more solidly, although the ending did make me wish there was a second book.
