What a fascinating book...Escape by Carolyn Jessop. I'll quote the cover ~ Escape provides an astonishing look behind the tightly drawn curtain of the FLDS Church, one of the most secretive religious groups in the United States. ~  

I read a hardback from my library but if you have any interest in reading a riveting book about this group....this is one to put on your wish list.

I have been wanting to read that book.  It sounded very interesting.  I read an article about her in a magazine.  My library doesn't have it.  I was hoping someone here would.

Thanks its on my WL now. If you like this you might like Under the Banner of Heaven: A story of Violent Faith by John Krakauer. Its not only true crime its also a pretty thourogh history of the FLDS and LDS churches.
