I loved her first book "Shattered Dreams but in this one I hated her writing style, it was so disjointed, she jumped around with random thoughts and things that had occured, none of them seemed to be in order. It was almost like she had remembered things so she wrote a book to include them. There were so many names and relationships thrown into the mix that I had trouble keeping up. Now that's not to say that this book wasn't interesting cause it was. My take on all this is "Why?". I know this is a religion but this is the kookiest, most insane type of belief I have ever run across. The way the women and children are treated is nothing short of abuse. So if you like reading about a life of poverty, where people are kept in line with nutty ideas of how they will enter heaven, if you believe that just by someone stating "I am the One and True Prophet" and can even remotely understand that kind of mindset, well feel free to read this.
