Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Jones’s] gripping memoir—like Educated—takes you inside a disturbing childhood and leaves you marveling at the resilience of the human spirit." — People

“Jones bridges entertainment and empathy by penning a page-turning memoir that is not just a fascinating and heartbreaking look at life inside a cult, but ultimately an empowering story of resilience." — USA Today (four stars)

“The no-holds-barred story of growing up in an extremist religious cult preparing for the end of days is hard to put down from its very first sentence. Jones brings us along as she tries to navigate a world few of us can imagine while contending with the conflicts of love, loyalty and growing up.” — Newsweek

“The author’s absorbing, meticulously detailed description of her early life with her eight siblings in Macau, and later episodes in Thailand, Hong Kong, the US, and Kazakhstan, recall both The Glass Castle and Educated. The extreme poverty, hard work, and over-the-top physical punishment are balanced by a child’s-eye view of a fascinating, unfamiliar world…It is engrossing and well-crafted; it is shocking and at times, salacious; it is also seriously important.” — Washington Post

“Both inspiring and disturbing, Sex Cult Nun unravels Jones’ complicated upbringing, the trauma she endured as a result and her eventual path to liberation.” — Time

"In this outstanding debut, Jones recounts her upbringing in and escape from the infamous cult, the Children of God… As Jones transports readers from Macau to Kazakhstan to the United States, Jones skillfully provides the mental framework to understand her past as an indoctrinated individual in hopes of helping others ‘stand up for themselves.’ This remarkable account of self-liberation is not to be missed." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Jones...tells her harrowing story in a brisk present-tense voice, lending her recollections a sense of disturbing immediacy...in this powerful book." — San Francisco Chronicle

“It is an extraordinary book, chilling in its account of delusion and depravity, but also inspiring.” — The Daily Telegraph

“Jones not only shined a marvelous light on the criminally destructive nature of religious cults but how the effects of abuse and mind control permeated every aspect of the followers’ lives. Sex Cult Nun also provides a narrative of triumph that one could escape an egregious cult and create an authentic life free from abuse. As Faith Jones has done for herself, may her life story be a testament to the power of determination and the quest for freedom at all costs.”  — San Francisco Book Review

“[A]n exceptional debut… A must-read memoir of self-discovery and reinvention that readers will find impossible to put down. Pass along to fans of Tara Westover’s Educated.” — Library Journal (starred review)

"[A]n absolute must-read." — Bitch Magazine

“Faith Jones’s memoir of growing up in the Children of God religious cult is shocking and, ultimately, life-affirming…. An eye-opening account sure to please those who love a good cult book or just a good memoir.” — Booklist

“Complex and richly detailed, the book provides fascinating insights into a secretive religious organization while offering often heartbreaking details about the nature and repercussions of growing up indoctrinated in a cult. A powerful and disturbing memoir.” — Kirkus Reviews

Sex Cult Nun is an unflinching often heart-wrenching and thrilling reckoning with a childhood shaped by a notorious cult, and the story of how Jones came through fire to make sense of it all.” — Lauren Hough, New York Times bestselling author of Leaving Isn’t the Hardest Thing

“Startlingly honest and hard to put down, Faith Jones's memoir is proof that your past needn't define you and that anything is survivable.” — Wendy Lawless, New York Times bestselling author of Chanel Bonfire

“Faith Jones offers a powerful memoir full of childhood joy yet rooted within a world where abuse is rampant and happiness cannot last. An accessible story about a woman who liberates herself from the binds of an abusive, patriarchal cult, Sex Cult Nun will keep readers turning pages.” — Donna Freitas, author of Consent

“In this moving memoir of her childhood, Faith Jones recalls growing up in a religious cult…. Harrowing, but also fierce and inspiring.” — CrimeReads

“A fascinating read for anyone interested in cults and how they operate.” — The Globe and Mail

3.0 out of 5 stars The book is great but the package came with a dirty/damaged dust cover
By Brandi on May 13, 2022
I bought this new and it came with damages and stains. This is no reflection of the author or the books readability. It is a wonderful book. However, the shipping from Amazon was disappointing
