After the Fire
After The Fire was a passionate and thought-provoking book, with lots of intricate characters and natural switching between present and past.
It tells the story of a girl called Moonbeam who grew up in a cult-like facility called 'The Lord's Legion' under the cruel and dictatorial leadership of Father John. Stories from there are told throughout the book as Moonbeam talks to a therapist and agent once she escaped The Lord's Legion after it's fiery downfall. Her experiences are harrowing, and sad to know that it was all she ever knew.
I think the author of this book wrote it in a way that I didn't want to put it down; there was a very clear climax. There were a few times where it went a little too slow-paced for my liking, but that is my only complaint. I would earnestly recommend this book, and hope you enjoyed it as much as I did
