During the time the memoir was compiled, a fifty-year-old mystery in Morabito Meyer’s life was solved. She discovered that her parents had been members of the Temple of the Abundant Life in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, run by a convicted criminal who was wanted on outstanding warrants in the United States. William Franklin Wolsey was masquerading as a Bishop in this cult, and was the target of investigative reporting by the Vancouver Sun newspaper. The author’s memories of horrific childhood abuse documented in the book, corresponded to the events reported in the news in 1959, at the time she learned about the cult in 2011. This information is summarized in the book’s epilogue. Her memories included near death experiences as a result of her parents’ involvement with William Franklin Wolsey, in which she remembers visiting Heaven and seeing Jesus. Meyer maintains that William Franklin Wolsey was responsible for the deaths of four children she witnessed. Meyer, who moved with her parents to the United States in 1961, became an Astronomer and working for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory on NASA’s Voyager mission to Jupiter, discovered the volcanic activity on Jupiter’s moon Io in 1979. The memoir interleaves the author’s noteworthy science, personal, and religious experiences.
