Liesel Albright has dreamed of starting a family. She never bargained on inheriting one already in progress ... or one so deeply damaged. When nineteen-year-old Sunshine appears on the Albrights' doorstep claiming Liesel's husband, Chris, is her father, all they can think to offer is temporary shelter. The next day, they're stunned by the news that the Family of Superior Bliss, led by a charismatic zealot, has committed mass suicide. Sunny and her children haven't just left the compound--they've been left behind. Now, instead of a baby of her own, Liesel must play mother to the four survivors, while Chris retreats into guilt and denial. For Sunny, however, a lifetime of teachings is not easily unlearned. No matter how hard she tries to forget, an ominous catechism echoes in her mind, urging her to finish what the Family started.

Story of young woman raised in a cult. When she escapes with her children she has trouble adapting to modern life. Simplistic writing style, poorly developed characters, repetitive information as though the reader can't keep details of plot/ character development in mind through the time it takes read the book.
