Rebekah is disoriented, abused, damaged. Life as a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults) raised in an altered sense of reality as a Jehovah's Witness doesn't foster contentment or independence. While tasked with interpreting for her Deaf parents, Rebekah fantasizes about a life beyond Kingdom Hall walls and succumbs to worldly temptation, pulling her away from the Truth. Banished from her childhood home at sixteen, she is unprepared to live "in the world."
After nine years—and a slew of reckless, amoral decisions—Rebekah returns to the Kingdom Hall, quickly realizing she's made a grave mistake. Led by her strong intuition, she leaves the Truth again and is shunned once more. Feeling defeated and alone, Rebekah begins therapy. As pieces of her life come together, a bigger picture is unveiled and somewhere on the train track of her childhood, Rebekah discovers truth, acceptance, and autonomy.
Recalling sessions with her therapist, Joel, Rebekah finds herself candid and a bit jocose. This daring memoir explores the aftereffects of heavy-handed cult mind control and what one woman must do to break free.
