New book 'Not without my sister'
I am pleased to anounce my new book co-writen with my sisters' Celeste Jones and Juliana Burhing.
We were born into The Family-this is our story.
It will released in July 2007 and can be pre-ordered at
Congratulations! I look forward to reading it.
Are you sure it won't be released until July 2007? I have seen some book seller sites which say April 2, 2007 (which I assume is the UK release date) and others which say July 2, 2007 (which I assume is the release date outside the UK).
I ordered it from the U.S. amazon.com site
and they said it would be shipped on April 9th or 10th. When I ordered it, the availability status was "In stock soon. Order now to get in line. First come, first served" but now it says "Usually ships in 4 to 6 weeks" so they may have temporarily limited stock.
may be helpful for finding online book sellers which have it in stock now or expect to soon.
The book is officially launched this year.
I hope that it will become a best seller.
I just signed up to be alerted when this is available on the U.S. Amazon site.

Has anyone else noticed that this book is listed in the number one spot
for "Top 10 non-fiction books" for HarperCollins Australia?
read your book in Australia
I bought and read your book in one sitting over the weekend. I'm at a loss as to how to even process the information in it but I am blown away with your survival skills. I cried for all the other children who either never got out, or didn't even know they were trapped.
What terrible terrrible crimes have been committed in the name of organised religion. ANY religion at that.
A a parent, I'm disgusted that I have to share that title with so many freak adults belonging to COG (or whatever they call themselves now) who are too weak to question their authorities and continue to perpetrate horrific crimes of betrayal - on their own kids! It's just wrong that no one is being made accountable. Turning a blind eye is JUST as bad as doing it in the first place.
I have picked this book for my bookclub to read next. As a proud agnostic who works with victims of child abuse, I will definitely do my bit to raise awareness for the sake of your family - and I DO mean biological family. I deeply felt for your mother in the story and hope she has found peace to balance the turbulence in her young adult life.
NB: As an outsider to the family past and present:
I wish eternal unhappiness to the founders of this sick organisation. I'm starting to read some of the philosophies of the group (as written by Berg) and find the whole concept of their belief system ludicrous. I couldn't care less if any current members want to hide in obscurity waiting for the end of time but try not to rape any small children while you're at it.

got my book today. looking forward to reading it
The Book speaks for itself..
The Book made me cry from begining to end, I am a Parent of three beautiful children (2) girls and (1)boy. I can't imagine ever being seperated or watching someone abuse them. My first reaction to reading the book was to hold my own children tight and close. Thank you for being strong and speaking for those who can not against such a perverted and disgusting group of sub-humans... God Bless you and keep you and your families safe. Kibbles
