“An exceedingly informative and absorbing story. I loved Una. The creepy cults and belief systems portrayed in this work are well researched and I must say, it freaked me out how effectively they recruit new members, manipulate facts and abuse the truth to keep them in their collectives . . . an outstanding read.”

is riveting; an unique story filled with twists that will keep you guessing until the very end. It's teeming with suspense, drama and sheer emotion, as well as having descriptions so vivid you can't help but feel apart of the journey. A simply captivating read from start to finish . . .

Posted August 12, 2011. One of the best free books available, I truly enjoyed the book, the story line, all the twists and the unfailing message of hope and enduring love despite disappointment, tragedy and loss. To the author...make us pay for the next one, you're books are worth it! . . .

This book would make a great movie or mini series. As someone who was once involved in a very controlling religious "cult" I can sympathize with the struggle to remove a loved one from a dangerous influence. The ending seemed a bit "rushed" though. i would have liked to have seen more closure, but I supposed that real life doesn't always have that, so it was realistic. Overall loved the book and am amazed that it was free . . .

Amazing. Its so real and the bitter truths revealed to the reader are actually the facts of life . . .

Highest rating . . . Can somebody write a description for this book because I can't find one . . . ** thanks ** . . .

Amazing . . .

What a complex and unique story line. A book that can be quickly read in part and in other sections I had to go back to re-read several times because if you skim over what is perceived to be dull, or un-interesting you miss out on crucial information. The only thing that disappointed me even slightly was that I was hoping to finally get the real skinny on Una at the end. I was left still not understanding how she could weigh so much importance within this family and business dynasty. So carefully written that I could have sworn I was reading non-fiction. I was a little put off by the protagonist's sexual escapades at times but he came through in the end with his leap of character. A complex family . . .

I really liked this book. Not only was it longer, deeper, more complex than many . . . but it was well written & had many twists & turns. I truly enjoyed it & couldn't put my reader down all day. If you're looking for something not so mainstream ( aka romantic & brief) this is a great one to read! . . .

An excellently written book about an orphan in New Jersey who has the fortune to be hit on the head with a shovel while stealing flowers from a garden. This leads to his adoption by a wealthy family and a completely new life for him. He learns, however, that the "Laws of life for orphans and other unlucky people" stays with him. A gripping, realistic, book that kept me reading to the end . . .

loved it! I thought it was a great story. very well thought out and put together . . .wish there were more like this . . .

a gripping story with multiple grand finales which does not allow you to set it down until the last page has been reached. An excellent read and very informative on the subject of cultism with characters that no reader will forget . . . an invigorating clever plot line.

if you like a story that encompasses suspense, action and keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat, then it's a must read. You immediately sympathize with the protagonist and his journey-captivates you from the first page to the last. It's exciting and interesting. I enjoyed it immensely and highly recommend it.

E A St Amant moves you through a story about one person’s misfortunes, caused entirely by his unburnished orphanage. Born at the bottom, learnt in the streets of New Jersey, sexually abused and finding himself at eight years old all alone in the world, he defies the cherished tragic outcome oft generated by our liberal prejudice. Driven in part by a need to repay the unconditional love given him by his adopted family when he was already too old to expect it, he triumphs through self-determination, seizing the opportunity to become one of the most accomplished men in the world.

Made of an humanistic fabric; very good – excellent.

Una is an intriguing character; her subtle presence, calm kind words and wisdom left this reader with the desire to personally meet with her, or the muse that inspired her character. E A St Amant’s work reads beautifully - the descriptions are rustic and vivid, you truly feel as if you are a part of the story: seeing what the characters are seeing, feeling what the characters are feeling.
