I normally shy away from audio books read by the author, but this is a gem. Her story is powerful, and to hear her share her own FLDS experiences will leave you wanting to know more. I finished this book in 2 days, and I'd love to read more by this author. I'm fascinated by the FLDS, and this memoir stands apart because it delves into the aftermath of growing up in such an environment. I commend this woman for stepping out and for being so vulnerable.

I have listened to many audio books in the past several years, approaching 100 or so, and I must say, this one is close to the top of my favorites. Rebecca Musser is an AMAZING narrator. I am not sure what she is doing nowadays but she could earn a living at Audible.com. Her voice is so articulate and smooth and full of measured emotion. The story of the FLDS itself for me was not a complete surprise, as I have studied religion for over 20 years. (Also been an atheist for over 40.) I spent some time in southern Utah many many years ago and got a taste of what went on there via a super-secret girlfriend. The "leaders" of these people are very demented, in fact, the FLDS is similar to the fundamentalist Muslims in the way they brainwash their young and completely control their women. It is very sad indeed. It is amazing to me how these sects can continue to exist in this country. I can only hope that more of these young girls can escape this hell on Earth they live in. Rebecca Musser is no doubt a hero. Her bravery and tenacity are examples for others to follow. . A champion of the oppressed indeed. I would love to meet her one day just to shake her hand.

This is the most engrossing and thought-provoking true story of how one evil religious leader can control and manipulate hundreds of innocent people. A must for anyone who hates power-driven leaders.
