Review by: BoxerMom

Sad, disturbing, very emotional about life in the FLDS cult. The relationship between the "sister wives" is not as often portrayed in the media. In the cult, basically, sex is power, and the wife who is the sexual favorite rules the household. Abuse of all types is portrayed in this book, but the author's survival instinct is strong.

A compelling account of life in the FLDS by a woman who was born into it and finally escaped with her eight children when she was in her early thirties. She dwells a little too long in some areas but it is quite a story and, to think, this is still going on today.
