The dramatic first-person account of life inside an ultra-fundamentalist American religious sect, and one woman's courageous flight to freedom with her eight children. When she was eighteen years old, Carolyn Jessop was coerced into an arranged marriage with a total stranger: a man thirty-two years her senior. Merril Jessop already had three wives. But arranged plural marriages were an integral part of Carolyn's heritage: She was born into and raised in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), the radical offshoot of the Mormon Church that had settled in small communities along the Arizona-Utah border. Over the next fifteen years, Carolyn had eight children and withstood her husband's psychological abuse and the watchful eyes of his other wives who were locked in a constant battle for supremacy. Carolyn's every move was dictated by her husband's whims. He decided where she lived and how her children would be treated. He controlled the money she earned as a school teacher. He chose when they had sex; Carolyn could only refuse at her own peril. For in the FLDS, a wife's compliance with her husband determined how much status both she and her children held in the family. Carolyn was miserable for years and wanted out, but she knew that if she tried to leave and got caught, her children would be taken away from her. No woman in the country had ever escaped from the FLDS and managed to get her children out, too. But in 2003, Carolyn chose freedom over fear and fled her home with her eight children. She had $20 to her name. Escape exposes a world tantamount to a prison camp, created by religious fanatics who, in the name of God, deprive their followers the right to make choices, force women to be totally subservient to men, and brainwash children in church-run schools. Against this background, Carolyn Jessop's flight takes on an extraordinary, inspiring power. Not only did she manage a daring escape from a brutal environment, she became the first woman ever granted full custody of her children in a contested suit involving the FLDS. And in 2006, her reports to the Utah attorney general on church abuses formed a crucial part of the case that led to the arrest of their notorious leader, Warren Jeffs.… (més)

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. ( )

Every single one of these books break my heart a little more. What a remarkable woman. ( )

This book was very interesting. The story is almost hard to believe, hearing it from an insider in the community. You feel like you are almost a part of the community as well. I would recommend this book to anyone intrigued by the polygamous lifestyle. But be aware, it's not pretty. ( )

One of the first autobiographies that I read about the FLDS. I was drawn in and couldn't put the book down. It was fascinating and horrifying as to how much abuse and pain that goes on in this cult. ( )

I am sorry but did read it right away. I finished it this weekend and was sure overtaken with shock as to the way the woman are treated in this cult. I watched her interviewed on Oprah as well as her daughter Betty. Betty, of course, denies all the horror her mom and the other women endure due to her brainwashing. I cannot believe that we haven't been able to shut this group down yet. It is horrendous that this goes on in our country.

I dedicate this book to my eight children: Arthur, Betty, LuAnne, Andrew, Patrick, Merrilee, Harrison, and Bryson. My love for you knows no bounds. Even in my darkest days, you always gave me the meaning and reason I needed to go on.



This book is also dedicated to the women and children who may feel as desperately trapped by polygamy as I did and may wonder if they even deserve to dream of freedom and safety. You do.
