Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Alice Angel has known only a life of rules, restriction and punishments that are inevitably doled out as she strays from the rigid path of Victorian proprietary that her mother has set out for her. A constant disappointment to all but her beloved father, she longs for the day that she might break free from the stifling atmosphere of her mother's rule. After a chance encounter with a charming stranger, and a final incident with her family which sees her condemned to the madhouse, Alice sees her opportunity to run and grasps it with both hands. She escapes to join the Agapemonites in their Abode of Love, where ex-Reverend Henry Prince rules his isolated colony of women as their Beloved. Prince ignites a passion in Alice that she never knew existed, and she dares to think she might be free at last. But as Alice becomes more deeply drawn into the life of Prince's strange religious sect, secrets are revealed that seem to hint at a darker nature lurking behind the man's charm. Alice could be more trapped, alone and in danger than ever before ...
