Abode of Love: Growing Up in a Messianic Cult
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn 1948, Kate Barlow, her mother, and her two sisters went to live with her grandmother and 20 elderly ladies on a ramshackle estate called Agapemone (Greek for "abode of love") in Spaxton, England. Kate's questions about her home and family met with evasive answers, but at age 14 she learned enough of the truth to find out the rest. Agapemone was a cult headed by her late grandfather, Dear Beloved, who said he was Jesus Christ. What's more, her grandmother was not his legal wife but his "spiritual bride," and some of the old ladies had been his consorts as well. Abode of Love tells how Kate Barlow discovered that her childhood home and its eccentric but kindly inhabitants hid a religious and sexual scandal.
