Rebecca Stott
In the Days of Rain

Join Costa Biography Award winner 2017 Rebecca Stott as she discusses her award-winning, unflinching memoir In the Days of Rain which reflects on growing up in, and breaking away from, a
fundamentalist Christian sect. The Exclusive Brethren were a closed community: an ultra-conservative subset of the Christian Evangelical Church, who believed the world was ruled by Satan. Gathering threads of her dying father’s memories, as well as her own, she tells the story of her family’s experience within this sect and the decades-long aftermath of their breaking away from the sect.
