Fourteen Year old Justin and his younger seven year old brother Curtis have never lived a normal life. Raised in a pseudo-Christian cult group known as the Messianic Authoritarians, they have
strict rules to live by enforced by their parents, which is not helped by the fact that their dad is a pastor of a dying elderly congregation in this fringe group. Justin and Curtis long to break
free of the tyranny of forced poverty and piety, but are blocked by their parents, but even more seriously by their uncle Vern Frank, who is Dean of the entire collective 'church' organization. Set
in the smallish fictitious Republic of Reimar in the year 1999, things mostly take place in the large blue collar industrial river city of Greenfield in the Reimarian state of Harrington. Follow
Justin as he is forced to learn spiritual fact from fiction in every aspect of his life- the hard way.
