How has a reclusive Christian community managed to cover up the death of a child, in concerning circumstances, for more than a year? And why? The Circuit team investigates.
We’ve never met Sharon Ready, or MaryAnne Green as she once was. She’s been a member of the isolated Cooperites community, now Gloriavale, for more than 40 years. We’re not allowed in to see her, we can’t talk to her on the phone.
Yet we feel as though we know Sharon, or at least have a very strong sense of her; of what drives and guides her.
