Sheri Reynold's Rapture of Canaan title gave me the initial imporession it would be a 'hardship' survival, tell all book about an excape from a cult. It was totally unexpected when I started to read a story about a young girl and her life within this 'self-developed' sect, her comfort in growing up with her immediate family, under the strict guidance of her preacher grandfather and her story-telling grandmother. There is death and sadness, happiness and love, events that occur for the better and worse, but the entire story is beautifully written. I couldn't put the book down, the story line was so interesting and didn't want to wait to see 'what happened next.

This book is eye-opening, especially to those who go to a church that is not"free". We love God and want to please Him, but we are only human, not supernatural as He is. We are taught how to please God in so many different ways. (Depending on which, what kind, of church you go to) This book was written with so much detail and experience. I loved it. I recommend it to be read by anyone and everyone.

Sheri Reynold's Rapture of Canaan title gave me the initial imporession it would be a 'hardship' survival, tell all book about an excape from a cult. It was totally unexpected when I started to read a story about a young girl and her life within this 'self-developed' sect, her comfort in growing up with her immediate family, under the strict guidance of her preacher grandfather and her story-telling grandmother. Her entire family showed that they loved her and other members of the family within the sect and even though their life-style might have been considered 'harsh' by outsiders, they felt they lived a 'good' life.
The young protagonist's 'surprise' pregnancy came about from the Church and her parents failure to communicate properly to her about the birds and bees and her misinterpretation of the "Rapture" the members of the church were constantly seeking.
There is death and sadness, happiness and love, events that occur for the better and worse, but the entire story is beautifully written. I couldn't put the book down, the story line was so interesting and didn't want to wait to see 'what happened next.'
This book would be a very good read for anyone looking for a good story that emphasizes family love and devotion in the face of life's hardships.

I am sure this is part if not all of it a true story as how can one come up with what was going on in this book and I gave it to my sister to read and she agreed with me. Hummm We did really enjoy reading this book wow. AND this author has written other books that we have read and enjoy everyone of them.

Sheri Reynolds is one of my favorite authors and I was not disappointed by this novel. The story unravels as the main characters world is also shaken, but Sheri spins beautiful prose that keeps the reader engaged and deeply emotionally involved with the characters.

If you like this novel, I would highly recommend "Bitterroot Landing" by the same author.

Our book club, The Sunday Afternoon Tea Book Club, chose Rapture this month. I believe our discussion will go beyoun the gentile enviornment of our Sunday High Tea. Rapture begins as an ordinary tale. When one is too entangled in the read to pick up another book, the pleasant story turns to fire and brimstone. In an era where so much of the new fiction seems to tell of an abused childhood, Rapture is the epitomy.
