    Family Love Story

    ** spoiler alert ** Thank you so much to Warren Adler for the ARC of this book. I really thought this book was going to be about cults and a focus on trying to get the main character, Grace, out of a cult--which it was to some extent. However, it was more of a love story, a beautiful love story about a family full of love for each other. Pauline and Harry were so in love when they married and had their daughter Grace. They showered her with love as she grew up. Harry, a screen writer, got a job on the West Coast and moved for it. Paulie didn't want to leave so eventually they split up with Grace staying in NYC visiting Harry when she could. They all remained close in spite of the divorce even as Harry and Pauly married other people. Grace is living in DC and happy, working in politics and on her own. Suddenly she just kind of disappears and her parents immediately worry because Grace is rarely out of touch. They join together in search of Grace who seems to have abandoned her life and joined a cult in California. The cult part of the story is shocking and difficult to read but probably extremely realistic in showing how cults operate. Pauly and Harry desperately try to get Grace out of the clutches of the cult even though she already appears to be completely brainwashed and says she is happy. They try everything, including some very drastic measures, to rescue Grace. During the process of trying to get Grace back, they fall in love again. The love between them is absolutely beautiful and my favorite part of the story. This book was an unexpected love story that unfolded during the battle to save a woman from a life in service to a leader who thinks he should rule the world. Sad but probably true in the real world. Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down. It was intriguing. Absolutely worth reading! My first Warren Adler book but definitely not my last.

    Cult classic🤣

    The relationship between Harry and Paulie is too much of a main point of this book. However, the plot that was trying to squeeze through the love story was quite interesting. Grace gets sucked into a cult and the divorced couple tries to get their daughter back. I would have liked to have seen more back story on the girl and the cult since that is what the book is about... but overall decent read.
