I was amazed by the details of this story and enjoyed this audiobook's telling of one woman's journey out of an entrapping community. I found it to be a courageous, empowering, hopeful book, and the fact that it was read by the author made it that much more riveting. I listened to this audiobook months ago, but still find myself thinking about this story and how compelling it was in so many ways. I loved it!

The whole FLDS society fascinates me, so this book was an interesting read for me. It is also disturbing, frustrating, horrifying, and aggravating at the same time. A good read if you want to learn more about life in FLDS.

Oddly, the whole thing seemed to work while Rulon Jeffs, the paterfamilias, was alive, but his son then got a little greedy with the wives and the proclamations, and the widowed author had had enough and eloped with somebody else. She doesn't reflect much about why it still goes on, except to state the obvious, that it seems normal when you're raised that way. Or why she needed another man to help her escape from the whole thing.
This could have been an interesting look at how the FLDS culture operates, but it's light on reflection and heavy on the Hallmark moments. Readable, but don't expect much originality or flair for analysis.
