This story carries on from the best selling novel – I am not Esther.
Rebecca is one of the twins in the family Kirby/Esther went to live with for two months in the original story. Rebecca and her twin Rachael are growing up and the whole Wanganui Children of the Faith family move down to Nelson to join up with another group. They are to have a new leader too – Elder Stephen.
When the girls turn 14 they will learn who they are to be betrothed to. This is exciting but scary too. Who will ask for their hand?
I enjoyed this long awaited sequel about a girl dealing with doubt. She has been raised by The Children of the Faith and lives by The Rule. But is there another way? Was Esther right all along?
