In The Raincoat People, Lesley unpacks her decade long immersion in the Jim Roberts Group, recounting the tale of a life extraordinary: a violent rape, a forced abortion, the freegan and nomadic lifestyle, an arranged marriage to a Brother, three remarkable home births, a quadruplet miscarriage, harsh threats of losing her children, and finally an escape and return to South Africa. Told largely through a series of letters between Lesley and her mother, an intricate memoir emerges that takes readers into the devout and devastating world of one of America’s most insular and secretive cults.
