About this title


When an asocial, religious sect intervenes into a family’s way of life, the once harmonious, natural flow of daily living can be destroyed. This young adult novel reveals the effect that the WatchTower Bible and Tract Society, best known as Jehovah’s Witnesses, has on two teenagers, Jack, 16, and Susan 15, by exposing the reality that dwells behind the Society’s façade.

The New York-based WatchTower Bible and Tract Society reaches around the world with more than 25 million semimonthly issues of the WatchTower magazine printed in 147 languages; and with 22 million semimonthly issues of the Awake magazine printed in 81 languages. The Society has over 6,000,000 members, 15,000,000 adherents, and more than 94,600 congregations. It is, in fact, a worldwide cult. Although known around the world the vast majority of the public is not aware of Jehovah’s Witnesses’ true eccentricity, which this novel has attempted to reveal.

The story is divided into three parts.

Part I discloses much of the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ beliefs and the effect on proselytes and their families.

Part II describes Jack’s and Susan’s experiences on the road as they travel from Michigan to the Florida Everglades.

Part III introduces Jim, a Cow Creek  Seminole, his world of the Everglades, and his relationship with Jack, Susan and their natural father, Michael.

And yes, sadly, the headlines on the back cover are factual.

About the Author:

The author was born in Georgia and attended university in Ohio. However, restless and bored, he soon dropped out, opting for a "real world" education. His work took him to the Northern, Midwestern, and Southern portions of the United States. He presently lives in Florida. He has experienced first hand the WatchTower Bible and Tract Society's (Jehovah's Witnesses) methodology of member indoctrination and control. This realization unfolded for him when circumstances dictated he attempt to understand their design for living. His study revealed various methods used by the Jehovah's Witness hierarchy to "bring sheep into the fold" However, the tactic of instilling emotional separatism (shunning, disassociation, etc.) in a convert to keep at distance family members critical of the Witnesses' doctrine is one of the most heinous. This maneuver successfully allows instruction of a convert segregated from family influence. Thus the seeds are planted . . . and fertilized. The author's hope is that this novel, in its own way, will act as an informative causeway over the far-reaching waters of the authoritatively minded WatchTower Bible and Tract Society.
