Sequel to 'I Am Not Esther' which was published in 1998. When Rebecca and her twin sister turn 14, they will find out who they are to marry. All the girls in their strict religious sect, The Children of the Faith, must be married just after their 16th birthdays. Whilst the girls are initially happy with the choices made for them, Rebecca's intended is forced out of the sect because of decisions made by the seventy-seven year old leader whose wife has recently died. It is only later that Rebecca finds out why - when the leader chooses her to be his new wife! Rebecca's older brother, sister, and cousin have all previously escaped from the Children of the Faith and as the wedding date draws closer, Rebecca is caught between her family and her future. A fitting sequel to Beale's first book in this series, well written and engaging. ( )

I always enjoy reading Fleur Beale’s works as they are relative to New Zealand. This title was an excellent follow on from I am not Esther as it links Esther’s new life to those of her relatives still living within the commune. Life inside a religious cult becomes too much for 16-year-old Rebecca when she finds out who she is to marry. When she turns 14, Rebecca will find out who she is to marry. All the girls in her strict religious sect must be married just after their 16th birthday. Her twin sister Rachel is delighted when Saul, the boy she loves, asks to marry her. Malachi asks for Rebecca. She believes him to be a good and godly man. But will Rebecca find there is a dark side to the rules which have kept her safe? What does the future hold? Can the way ahead be so simple when the community is driven by secrets and hidden desires? ( )
