Item description for How I Ran Off to Sea and Became a Moonie by Dagmar Corales...
Were you ever approached in, say, Pisa, in the late 1970s by a neatly dressed German girl offering you a magazine and asking you for money for her Church?
She could well have been Dagmar, the author of these fascinating tales of a young lady swept up in the enthusiasm of a new life with the Unification Church, as she followed the father, Rev. Sun Myung Moon, on his special path to world peace and unity through Christian worship.
What makes young people devote their lives to such a cause -- or a new religion? Living austere and disciplined lives, fundraising all over Europe, fasting and praying and finally, getting married -- all this because 'Father knows best!'
Well, it was the international atmosphere, the strong bonds of friendship, and the desire to change the world, says the author, and, quoting a kindly Catholic priest in Nurtingen, 'You are wrapped up in the fire of first love'.
Has the love survived? Read Dagmar Corales' stories of selflessness, optimism and spiritual grace, and decide for yourself.

The fruits of the formula course Mar 2, 2004
For readers who have never been to Germany or Italy, Dagmar makes the places and people come to life with her stories of daily life as a young and sincere follower of the Rev. & Mrs. Sun Myung Moon. The reader can picture her and the many unique people she worked and lived with, as well as the people she met in the course of raising funds and communicating the ideals of the Unification movement. She went through the "formula course" of the movement and bears witness to its fruit in a deep faith, broad personality, solid character, indomitable spirit, and generous heart. The ending hints at another book to come, telling of her marriage and family life in Buenos Aires with her Argentinian husband.
