[Pen name of Linda Berg]. From the cover: “It was the late sixties, in an America already divided by the war in Vietnam and by growing disillusion with traditional middle-class values. It was a time of “police riots” in Chicago… of flamboyant experimentation with alternative lifestyles… of Hippies and Flower Children… and it was an era that marked the birth of new — and sometimes bizarre — religious movements: among them, the Children of God. Deborah Davis, born Linda Berg, lived through those years as the daughter, disciple, and as she now sees it — the dupe of the Children of God founder, David Berg. In a personal memoir as frightening as it is fascinating, she relives her experiences in the grip of the Children of God and recounts in detail the events that led her to flee the cult and her father’s sinister control, even at the risk of her life.
