Overview

Made of an humanistic fabric; very good – excellent an exceedingly informative and absorbing story. I loved Una. The creepy cults and belief systems portrayed in this work are well researched and I must say, it freaked me out how effectively they recruit new members, manipulate facts and abuse the truth to keep them in their collectives . . . an outstanding read . . . Una is an intriguing character; her subtle presence, calm kind words and wisdom left this reader with the desire to personally meet with her, or the muse that inspired her character.

Reads beautifully - the descriptions are rustic and vivid, you truly feel as if you are a part of the story: seeing what the characters are seeing, feeling what the characters are feeling; moves you through a story about one person’s misfortunes, caused entirely by his unburnished orphanage. Born at the bottom, learnt in the streets of New Jersey, sexually abused and finding himself at eight years old all alone in the world, he defies the cherished tragic outcome oft generated by our liberal prejudice. Driven in part by a need to repay the unconditional love given him by his adopted family when he was already too old to expect it, he triumphs through self-determination, seizing the opportunity to become one of the most accomplished men in the world. If you like a story that encompasses suspense, action and keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat, then it's a must read. You immediately sympathize with the protagonist and his journey-captivates you from the first page to the last. It's exciting and interesting. I enjoyed it immensely and highly recommend it.

A gripping story with multiple grand finales which does not allow you to set it down until the last page has been reached. An excellent read and very informative on the subject of cultism with characters that no reader will forget . . . an invigorating clever plot line.

    Very Good Book.

    This book would make a great movie or mini series. As someone who was once involved in a very controlling religious "cult" I can sympathize with the struggle to remove a loved one from a dangerous influence. The ending seemed a bit "rushed" though. i would have liked to have seen more closure, but I supposed that real life doesn't always have that, so it was realistic. Overall loved the book and am amazed that it was free

    One of the best free books available

    I truly enjoyed the book, the story line, all the twists and the unfailing message of hope and enduring love despite disappointment, tragedy and loss. Tiny errors in the text didn't detract from the ease of reading. To the author...make us pay for the next one, you're books are worth it!

    Best free read I've found so far

    Good storyline and character development. It was also nice to read a lengthier free book and to see that it had a lot less editing/grammatical errors than other free books I have read on the nook. I thought the development of the relationship between Christian and Susan was a bit rough and could have been better. I liked Una and Stan the best of all the characters.

    Really enjoyable read.

    The beginning of the book disturbed me, I didn't want to read about sexual abuse. I am happy that I took the chance & read it. Parts (name changes, in particular) were a little confusing, but it proved too be a well written book.
    Enjoy it.

    Great book

    This book is about an orphan who gets adopted into a very wealthy family. It tells the tragic tale of his life based in New Jersey (thank you for that!). The characters were well developed and I felt like I really knew them. I really enjoyed this book even though the word “I’d” was used too much and in the wrong context, it also had less typos than other Free Books and they didn’t detract from the story. I recommend this 749 page book and am eager to see what else this author has written. Good job! As a side note, everyone please note the correct wording of the following phrase: I couldn’t care less. The word is couldn’t not could. Saying it incorrectly totally changes the meaning of what you are trying to say. Thank you.
