In this best-selling, true story, Sila Caprin's mother is recruited into a religious cult, "Sam Fife's Move of God" in 1973. Within the year, Sila and her older siblings, Leis and Jeremy, along with all of the family’s belongings, are packed into the back of a U-Haul leaving California for their new home in Massachusetts. Eventually they will be taken deep into the Alaska tundra to a compound surrounded by miles of woods and monitored by armed men. Under the guise of Sam Fife's violent teachings Sila endures physical, mental and sexual abuse as she fights to maintain just a glimmer of her own humanity. Sila is creative, intuitive and smart as she vies for individuality in a culture where she is insignificant and unprotected; until the day her sister becomes a victim of an act that in its sadness becomes their savior. Vennie Kocsis has composed a deeply moving novel poignantly portraying the pure will and ability that children use to cope themselves through trauma.
