Summary
Jessop's exposé of polygamy practices among Fundamentalist Mormons is based upon her own experiences as a young woman trapped in one of these sects and her later efforts and activism against similar groups. The author details her escape from a life of sexual abuse and slavery, her subsequent battles with drug addiction and ultimately her role as an outspoken advocate for women's rights and a harsh critic of the FLDS. Written for general readers who won't flinch at the graphic details of the author's abuse, this book also makes a distinction between the fundamentalists and the mainstream LDS, calling the former group a "renegade and abusive cult."
