A memoir about Mormonism, childhood abuse & organised religion. There's lots of heavily divided reviews about this book on Amazon, and it is a divisive book - it's a very angry memoir, with good reason (no-one in the author's family believes that her father molested her). It's an interesting story about a spiritual awakening and is well written, but it didn't really hold my interest - I'm kind of over spiritual awakenings, I think.
