From dust jack­et
Daugh­ter of promi­nent church mem­bers, Nan­sook was hand­picked at age fif­teen by Rev­erend Moon to mar­ry his son, Hyo Jin. Dur­ing her fif­teen-year mar­riage, Nan­sook bore five chil­dren while attend­ing high school and Barnard Col­lege in Man­hat­tan. Her chil­dren pro­vide her only com­fort in a life of lone­li­ness and fear. Final­ly, with the sup­port of a few allies and an unbend­ing faith in God, she made a risky escape from the compound.This is the har­row­ing tale of her years as an abused wife and priv­i­leged mem­ber of a reli­gious cult, and her fight to cre­ate a life for her­self and her chil­dren, beyond the shad­ow of the Moons.

Avail­able com­mer­cial­ly. Learn more about Nan­sook Hong.
