“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?

Five Star Review on Amazon By Cynthia T.
I typically go for character-driven novels, and There in the Moon Mist did not disappoint. The protagonist, Lacy Grayson, pulled my heartstrings from the start. A number of times I found myself urging her to leave her circumstances behind as though she were my kid sister. Lucas, the boy to whom she was betrothed, is a character I wanted very much to dislike. But in spite of his flaws, I had sympathy for him. The story’s setting made me buy this book, but the various backgrounds and personalities of characters who nonetheless became members of a religious cult made me all the more eager to read it.
