Rate this:
A third-generation Jehovah's Witness, Amber Scorah had devoted her life to sounding God's warning of impending Armageddon. She volunteered to take the message to China where the immersion in a foreign language and culture turned her world upside down, and eventually led her to lose all that she had been sure was true. This unforgettable memoir examines what it's like to start one's life over again with an entirely new identity. With compelling, spare prose, "Leaving the Witness" traces the bittersweet process of starting over, when everything one's life was built around is gone.
