"We broke free of Scientology" - 2008-06-01
In September 2006 Kendra Wiseman, 25, was reading an old issue of Glamour when she came across a story by Astra Woodcraft titled "Why I Fled Scientology." Like Astra, Kendra had grown up in the secretive religion and made the agonizing decision to abandon it. She wrote to Astra, thanking her for the story. A year and a half later, Kendra heard another shocker: Jenna Miscavige Hill, the 24-year-old niece of Scientology leader David Miscavige, had also left the church. Kendra sent her an e-mail too.
