Like most autobiographies, it can get a little repetitive and self-serving. Wall is constantly speaking of her feelings, which are the same over and over again: fear, mainly, but also confusion, anxiety, and just a touch of anger. A person can only read about the fear and anxiety she faces when speaking to a church elder so many times before it becomes grating. The book is interesting, and topical. If you are looking for sordid details about what goes on in a polygamous cult, you won’t find that here. But if you are looking for a straightforward and mostly unbiased description of the FLDS, this is a good choice.
