    The dramatic first-person account of life inside an ultra-fundamentalist American religious sect, and one woman’s courageous flight to freedom with her eight children. When she was eighteen years old, Carolyn Jessop was coerced into an arranged marriage with a total stranger: a man thirty-two years her senior. Merril Jessop already had three wives. But arranged plural marriages were an integral part of Carolyn’s heritage: She was born into and raised in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), the radical offshoot of the Mormon Church that had settled in small communities along the Arizona-Utah border. Over the next fifteen years, Carolyn had eight children and withstood her husband’s psychological abuse and the watchful eyes of his other wives who were locked in a constant battle for supremacy. Carolyn’s every move was dictated by her husband’s whims. He decided where she lived and how her children would be treated. He controlled the money she earned as a school teacher. He chose when they had sex; Carolyn could only refuse—at her peril. For in the FLDS, a wife’s compliance with her husband determined how much status both she and her children held in the family. Carolyn was miserable for years and wanted out, but she knew that if she tried to leave and got caught, her children would be taken away from her. No woman in the country had ever escaped from the FLDS and managed to get her children out, too. But in 2003, Carolyn chose freedom over fear and fled her home with her eight children.

Great author.... Glad I have convinced my kids to give his books a try. Now they love him too.

Looks like an interesting read. I've heard of this book before...comes pretty highly recommended

An indispensable read whether your summer plans mean escaping from—or bracing for—encounters with relatives. #beachreads #summerreading

The Husband's Secret. This was my book club book for February. It was so good! It tells three different stories that all intertwine with one another, and paints such an interesting picture of what secrets can do in a marriage. And in my opinion shows amazing strength of the women in these stories. It's frustrating and intriguing. I give it 2 thumbs up. -J

“There are no 'ifs' in God's Kingdom. His timing is perfect. His will is our hiding place. Lord Jesus, keep me in Your will! Don't let me go mad by poking about outside it.”

I just finished this book. Excellent novel. A bump on the head and loss of memory for a while changes Alice's life all for the positive.
