I still think that the LeBaron family is more interesting than the Jeffs. It is hard to believe how much abuse was in the FDLS church and that they were so brain washed that they believed that it was okay for a 12 year old to marry a 50 or 60 year old man. yuck! ( )

It would be hard to give this book less than four stars, it's a well written autobiography. Of the books I have read about the FLDS this is one of the best. Musser manages to walk the line of information delivery and being compelling without launching into pity. Unlike under a banner of heaven this book doesn't touch on Mormonism except to illustrate the difference between LDS and FLDS, it also doesn't draw any conclusions about the faith, rather it rests solely on the condemnation of warren jeffs and his father Roulon. A good read for anyone interested in the trial or the subject. ( )

Got to page 118 before it had to go back to the library. Interesting reading, will have to requeue it to finish.
