When Hannah Harrison and her family left Gloriavale in the dead of the night, the only possessions they took with them were a few pillows, blankets and photos that were too precious to leave behind.
Her parents, James and Hope Harrison, wanted a new life for their 12 children away from secluded West Coast religious community. Hannah, the eldest, was 20 at the time.
