"She could close her eyes and wait for night, the night that only she knew. It lived and breathed and recognized her—the hostage girl—the one in the cult."

Trapped in a cult she's never believed in, can Lacy Grayson's courage free herself and her mother from the tyrant who controls their every move? After her father's death, Lacy is forced to join The Way when her misguided mother moves her into Reverend Way's commune. Lacy struggles for years to reject his teachings and convince her mother to leave. When Lacy's marriage arrangement to a fellow cult member is announced, she is more determined to flee-but not without her mother, her only remaining family. Then, Lacy meets Josh Bynes, a non-believer from the outside and her only real chance at freedom...and happiness. Is love strong enough to outsmart a callous leader and protect Lacy from the evils that still await her on the inside? And as two young lovers meet in the moon mist for secrecy, can a jaded mother understand a daughter whose dreams reach beyond their obsessive world?

"There in the Moon Mist--1st Edition was voted #8 by readers in the Preditors & Editors Top Ten Poll for Best New Independently Published Novels in 2007. This new 2015 edition will not disappoint!"

This book made me have to take an extra blood pressure pill! The tension is so high that even in the calm scenes, I was constantly on edge in fear that Lacy, the main character, was going to get caught sneaking a few moments of happiness in her nightmare existence inside the hellish cult known as The Way. The author also does a fantastic job of populating the cult with the perfect mix of repugnant and poignant characters that take you down an emotional gauntlet as you cheer Lacy on in her struggle to escape The Way with her mother, her sanity, her dignity and her LIFE! And I absolutely loved the open ending that allows for so much hope. Great story!
Good Points
The storyline and characters are what make this book so great! You really feel something for every character. Sometimes it's love and sometimes it's intense hatred, but they all make you feel something and that's what I love in a book!

This book was hard to put down from the moment I started it. I was so intrigued by the fact that a girl was in a cult against her will, but pretending to be a believer. That fact alone made the mental torture more than severe. I couldn't imagine being in a situation like that. The author paints the characters in such a way that you feel like you know them, and I was cheering by the end when the "reverend" got what was coming to him. I highly recommend this book!

There were times I got chills worrying what would happen to Lacy.
