really liked it
Read in February, 2012

Wow! I spent a very intense day reading this whole thing and getting nothing else done. It is mostly horrifying. It is so hard to believe that this kind of oppression is happening in present day America. While I knew a little about FLDS because of its common heritage with the LDS church, I didn't know how very far they have diverged from any church I recognize. This story put a huge damper on any sympathy I felt for the persecution they endure as a group, because so much of what they do is just so very wrong. I was pleased to find the hope at the end and see that the author has found freedom and love and appreciates them so deeply because of what she went through. Her strength and resilience are truly impressive.
