Captivating, astonishing, frightening and triumph. A woman finds the strength to leave polygamous cult in Ontario. ( )

At a young age, Carol was forced to marry her church leader, becoming one of his many wives. When her husband dies, the leadership of the church is passed to his son, an abusive and bullying man. This book outlines her struggles within the cult and her journey to leave.

I believe that this could be a powerful story, but I think the book has several problems that take away from the message. The author continually switches between past and present tense, which makes the book seem to move slowly. In addition, the author avoided using people’s names to protect their privacy. I completely understand this reasoning, but it makes the book feel detached and unreal. I think this book needs some editing and revisions in order to more fully convey the horror and desperation of Carol's situation ( )
