Lilia Tarawa escaped Gloriavale 8 years ago with her family when she was 18. She is the granddaughter of founder, Hopeful Christian and cousin of Dove Love (!)

She spoke to us about how and why she escaped, what life is like in Gloriavale and what it was like to try out new things when she left!

Lilia has a book out now - Daughter of Gloriavale My Life in a Religious Cult
