Summary
  • A first book by the creator of the "Dear Amber" podcast describes her strict upbringing as a third-generation Jehovah's Witness and her efforts to find her true place in the world apart from the edicts of her family and faith
  • A third-generation Jehovah's Witness, Scorah had devoted her life to sounding God's warning of impending Armageddon. She took the message to China, where immersion in a foreign language and culture turned her world upside down, and eventually led her to lose all that she had been sure was true. Beginning to understand that there were other ways of seeing the world, her loss of faith culminated in her own personal apocalypse. Shunned by family and friends as an apostate, Scorah was thrown into a world she had only known from the periphery. Here she examines what it's like to start one's life over again with an entirely new identity, trying to find meaning in the absence of religion.-- adapted from jacket
