Growing weary and increasingly unsettled with church-as-usual, Casey Ellis longs to find a church where she can experience more of God. So when she's invited to visit a lively group of believers who enthusiastically embrace their beliefs, Casey decides to see what it's all about.
Soon after, Casey is immersed in The Gathering. Overcome by the warmth of community, the careful attention of new friends, and the impartation of holy truth, Casey believes she's found what she's looking for—until the group becomes increasingly controlling over her life.
Is it possible that her quest for God has plunged her into spiritual deception? Can God reach beyond the walls of a group's control to free her? How can she ever trust her own judgment again?

About the Author
When Becca Anderson graduated with a degree in journalism, she was just following the tradition of other writers who have hung on the family tree. Today, she makes a living in freelance article writing, but reserves her passion for crafting meaningful fiction for the contemporary Christian reader. She and her husband live in East Texas, where she's always storing away material for another book in some corner of her computer hard drive.

I could not get dressed for my granddaughter's birthday party because I had to see what would happen with Casey. Becca Anderson is a tremendous storyteller and her novel is thought-provoking and addictive! Please, Becca, write another! Jerrilyne Roberson
The Gathering Place is well written and totally believable. If you are a person who longs to experience God and who feels the traditional church leaves you hungry, you will identify with Casey. You will hurt as you see her being trapped and will rejoice as Becca Anderson skillfully moves the story to a satisfying conclusion. You will feel like these are people that you know. The Gathering Place has depth, purpose, value, and meaning. It is well written and gripping. It's just a good read.
Wow. Great read. I didn¿t want to put it down. Surprises in the characters and plot were exhilarating and so true to the story of deception. I plan to get a copy of this book to a friend who lived out this story and has connections with some who still are. Makes even the mainstream Christian think about expectations of others. The fact that we just became cat owners made this book even better. I loved the role and descriptions of Andrew, the main character¿s cat.
