"Marceline Wanted a Bigger Adventure" by Shena McAuliffe. There isn’t much to see in tiny Richmond, Indiana, the birthplace and final resting place of Marceline Mae Baldwin, the mild-mannered nurse who became the wife of charismatic preacher Jim Jones. On a pilgrimage to Marceline’s gravesite, Shena McAuliffe considers the slippery slope from church to commune to cult and the freedoms we’re willing to trade for a sense of belonging.
