Wow! This story was amazing, revolting, heartbreaking, shocking...one of those things that words can't describe. I dealt with many emotions reading through this. On one hand, I see Carolyn as a strong, intelligent, brave woman who eventually used that intelligence to do the right thing for herself and her kids. On the other hand, I can't understand the level of idiocy that would keep an intelligent person in bondage that long.

My feelings were one part compassion for her and one part disgust with her. Judge me how you will, but mid-30s is far too late to come into the right-thinking it takes to get yourself out of sick situations.

I did a lot of research during and after reading the book. I'm glad she's living strong and happy with Brian and that most of her kids seem to have made good choices for their lives. I had nightmares about that puke Warren Jeffs last night. Ugh.

I enjoyed listening to this book, although the reader was a bit annoying at times.

I can't imagine the fortitude of character that Carolyn Jessop had to possess to survive the horrors that she faced.

Carolyn Jessop became the first woman to escape the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) who managed to retain full custody of all her children. Her story is chilling and eye-opening, as she tells of her childhood and the belief system she was brainwashed into trusting completely, the oppression and abuse of women and children that occured daily, and the immense risks she took to get herself and her children out safely. Ultimately it is a story of victory and freedom of both body and mind.… (lisätietoja)
