This dissertation is comprised of a collection of nine short stories concerning two young women raised in the same Korean American church environment. In their adolescence, both women are exposed to the influence of a religious cult; one joins, the other does not. This dissertation explores the crises that occur in the wake of a collision between culture and religion as each character seeks to find redemption and renewed faith in God, in family, and in herself.
