This paper drew the attention to the representation of the evangelical society in the novel which is full of values, mores and preconceptions associated with evangelicalism. It is intended to compare this representation with the existing norms of evangelicalism in real life. Furthermore, it tried to reveal the connection between the authorís own life experiences with the fictional society she created in the novel. The contradictions between the beliefs of evangelical people and their behaviours criticisized in the novel were underscored and questioned with regard to writerís objectivity in her fictional representation of a real community. The contrast between appearance and reality, the basis of the novel, was the starting point of the argument in this paper and it was aimed to reveal this contrast between the fictional world of the novel and the non-fictional world of members of a sect of Christianity.

Key words: Evangelicalism, region, hypocrisy, sexual preferences
