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.
