Re: Scientology Tell-All by Jenna MISCAVIGE Hill
Synopsis:

Jenna Miscavige Hill was raised to obey. As the niece of the Church of Scientology's leader David Miscavige, she grew up at the center of this highly controversial and powerful organization. But at twenty-one, Jenna made a daring break, risking everything she had ever known and loved to leave Scientology once and for all. Now she speaks out about her life, the Church, and her dramatic escape, going deep inside a religion that, for decades, has been the subject of fierce debate and speculation worldwide.

Piercing the veil of secrecy that has long shrouded the world of Scientology, this insider reveals unprecedented firsthand knowledge of the religion, its obscure rituals, and its mysterious leader—David Miscavige. From her prolonged separation from her parents as a small child to being indoctrinated to serve the greater good of the Church, from her lack of personal freedoms to the organization's emphasis on celebrity recruitment, Jenna goes behind the scenes of Scientology's oppressive and alienating culture, detailing an environment rooted in control in which the most devoted followers often face the harshest punishments when they fall out of line. Addressing some of the Church's most notorious practices in startling detail, she also describes a childhood of isolation and neglect—a childhood that, painful as it was, prepared her for a tough life in the Church's most devoted order, the Sea Org.

Despite this hardship, it is only when her family approaches dissolution and her world begins to unravel that she is finally able to see the patterns of stifling conformity and psychological control that have ruled her life. Faced with a heartbreaking choice, she mounts a courageous escape, but not before being put through the ultimate test of family, faith, and love. At once captivating and disturbing, Beyond Belief is an eye-opening exploration of the limits of religion and the lengths to which one woman went to break free.

Kirkus Reviews
An ex-member of Scientology's inner elite bolts--understandably, to trust this undistinguished but still valuable memoir. If Charles Dickens had been a sci-fi author, he might have dreamed up something like Scientology and its weird workhouses. Hill, born to parents who had been longtime members of sci-fi author L. Ron Hubbard's organization, and whose uncle is now its de facto leader, recounts a life resolutely within the realm of the thetans.

(snip)

"children over the age of six would be raised communally at locations close to Sea Org bases." Family visits dwindled, and Hill scarcely saw her mother unless on "special Scientology/Sea Org occasions…[when] I would get to see her for a whole day." Hill's break from the sect in 2005, after years of control, coincided with the publication of an unauthorized bio of Tom Cruise, perhaps its best-known member, which she found to be accurate. (snip)

I want to know how Tom Cruise is still seeing Suri. Don't they forbid any contact with non-Scientologists? Or are all of the reports that he has seen her a lie?

The Church is not enforcing that rule with Tom Cruise. They know better than to make him stop seeing Suri. But since he's such a devout follower, shouldn't he refuse all contact just as a matter of conscience, or is that just for the foolish peons of scientology.
