In 1984, fourteen-year-old Stefanie Hinrichs was dreaming of owning a horse, leaving school, and marrying Keanu Reeves.
But God had other plans for the teenager.
Her family belonged to a controversial Doomsday cult led by self-proclaimed Messiah, William Kamm, also know as the ‘Little Pebble’, who was building a new promised land for his followers deep in the Australian bush.
Stefanie was forced to become the false prophet’s child bride – one of eighty-four mystical spouses chosen by the Lord to bear his children for his new heavenly dynasty.
Forbidden from telling anyone about the illicit sexual relationship she kept a diary.
Investigative journalist, Megan Norris, unravels the story of Stefanie’s lost childhood, her courageous escape with Kamm’s child, and how the scribblings of a teenage girl brought one of Australia’s most dangerous sex predators to justice.
