I really got into this book. I loved her writing style. I felt like I was right there with her. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to understand the mindset of those who are members of the FLDS.

Eva Leger How's this one going for you? I really enjoyed this book. This is up there next to Escape for me. I can't wait to read another one. I forget which all I have but I know I have some good ones. There was one you were going to let me borrow but I bought it. I forget the title- maybe next month or whenever the taxes are done we can read it together. I don't think you've read it yet but actually, maybe you have. LOL

Jeannie this one is going great, I love her writing style. I just finished the part where she was forced to marry her cousin and I was actually feeling her anguish. my problem is finding the time to sit down and read it, it's usually late at night before I get that.
I KNOW we have a couple that we haven't read yet and I would love to do that. just let me get past April 15th before we start ok?
taxes...bah humbug!!

Eva Leger We do! I still have a pile sitting her of the ones I know for sure. I know we have more than just those though. Take your time because we can start one whenever we want. The later the better anyway for me since this challenge just started. I always go full speed ahead in the beginning and then fall back. LOL
This is a really good book though- I knew you'd like it.

Jeannie I will try to message you tomorrow with the ones I have about this subject and then we can go ahead and pick it to read whenever you want ok. as long as it's not during my vacation. I try to read light stuff at the beach and usually something that it doesn't matter if it gets a bit damp and sandy. LoL

Eva Leger That's a good idea too because I've gotten a few since we last talked about any of these. I still have that pile of books I know we both have and I haven't seen you read any but I don't think the polygamy ones are in there because I got them more recently.
Definitely do that but whenever- it doesn't matter to me.
