THE HARROWING STORY OF ONE WOMAN'S ESCAPE FROM THE FUNDAMENTALIST CHURCH OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS Aged eighteen, Carolyn Jessop was forced to marry a 50-year-old stranger and religious cult member. She became one of 6 wives and bore him 8 children in 15 years. Forced to obey her controlling husband's every demand, she had no money and no power. But when Carolyn discovered that her twelve-year-old daughter had spent three days at the new cult leader's home, she knew she had to take her children and flee. At thirty-five, Carolyn escaped. This is her harrowing - and ultimately triumphant - story. 'An amazing life event that Carolyn was brave enough to tell' Reader Review 'What an emotional rollercoaster it was reading this. Sadness, horror, disbelief, shock, excitement, hope' Reader Review 'Wow! Received this book in the morning, finished it by evening' Reader Review
