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. But in 2003 Carolyn chose freedom over fear and fled her home with her eight children.
Escape exposes a world that is tantamount to a prison camp, created by religious fanatics. Against this background, Carolyn Jessop's flight takes on an extraordinary, inspiring power. 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 its notorious leader, Warren Jeffs.

It’s unbelievable that these things exist nowadays, let alone in the USA.
The story, where it was unique, was well recounted. I can’t imagine how difficult it must have been to write down. I also love how well explained different types of abuse were and how the dynamics were explained. The evolving relationships between Jessop and her sister wives was especially interesting to me.
My only criticism is that there is a lot of repetition throughout where Jessop is explaining FLDS doctrine. I think a lot of it could have been edited down.
I’m glad Jessop seems to be doing well, and I hope this continues.
Eine äußerst spannende Lebensgeschichte mit vielen Inhalten und Details, die in der heutigen modernen Welt fast unglaublich erscheinen.
Schön erzählt und auch als Nicht-Muttersprachler sehr gut zu verstehen. Trotzdem empfiehlt es sich, die Sekte "FLDS" und deren Philosophie im Internet zu googlen.
Grasping Story, fantastic Speaker
This book is as exciting as a real life story can get. By telling her life story, the author combines interesting and so far unknown insights about the life in the Morman cult 'FLDS' with her personal experiences and views. The fabulous speaker arrouses the impression, that Carolyn Jessop herself is telling the story. Credible at every point, this book is grasping from the very beginning to the last minute.
