    I read Chapter 10: Leaving 1955

    It was an interesting read because I was familar with Bethel in late 1950's, the jazz clubs etc. she mentioned.

    She was one of only 45 women at Bethel at that time which had 450 brothers.

    It's very dense writing...... very improvisational like Jazz.

    The scene I enjoyed the most........ even made me grunt out loud was her telling Nathan Knorr that she was leaving Bethel. During this visit he sat with his back towards her looking out his office window at the Statute of Liberty and saying very little to her.

    The rest of the chapter was about how she came to leave the 'truth' itself.

    An intelligent, insightful, gritty account from a woman raised in the religion and who left and had a successful life as a well published writer.
