"We accept her! We accept her! One of us! One of us! Gooble gobble, gooble gobble! One of us! One of us!" - Freaks, 1932

"Resistance is futile" - Locutus of Borg, Star Trek: The Best of Both Worlds, 1990

In Now You're One Of Us, translated from the Japanese original by Michael and Mitsuko Volek, Noriko, a modern Japanese girl, marries into a family that seems too good to be true, except for the part about having eight people and four generations living under one roof ... and that one of the requirements of the marriage is that she moves in with them. Not for the first time, but none the less disturbing for the classic nature of the theme, does a young bride discover that she's not just marrying a handsome young man, but becoming part of a clan with dark ways and hidden agendas.

From official release/information:

Book Description: In the tradition of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca and Ira Levin's Rosemary's Baby, here is a new classic about the bride who's no longer sure what to think. All families have their own rituals, secrets, and credos, like a miniature religious cult; these quirks may elicit the mirth or mild alarm of guests, but the matter is rather more serious if you're marrying into a household. If it's a Japanese one with a history, the brace yourself: some surprising truths lurk around the corner.
