As I read this book I was amazed to see that Martha's experience was almost identical to the experience of a friend of mine. That friend has been convinced that she was a victim of "false memory syndrome". Interesting... I think Martha addressed some of the really wonderful things about the Morman people as well as the not so good. It's so sad that anyone who speaks out against a wrong is for the most part immediately attacked.
Say something about yourself!
I got about one hour into this book and couldn't take any more. I thought it would be useful information about the Mormon cult, but this lady is in the clouds. If you were looking for some way to waste $20 or one of your credits then, by all means, snag this one.
While Mormons won't like this book, I believe it would be beneficial to read it. There are a lot of facts presented that upon further investigation are quite eye-opening.
For the non-Mormon, it's an enlightening and entertaining listen.
Mormons won't like this book but it's absolutely brilliant and honest. This is an insight into the Mormon church that the world needs to know. Maybe they'll make some changes based on Martha's honest story.
The authur appears to be so self involved that she neglects the readers basic reason for buying the book, which is to better understand life with the Mormons.
This audio book is a treasure and I am not even remotely surprised that the reviews are so polarized, for all the obvious reasons. I am recommending this book to everyone I know.
Really enjoyable! The author provides an unique look into Mormon culture as she relates her spiritual journey. I found her description of people saving an institution's reputation a at their own and other's expense to be transferable to many situations within and without the religious world. She dealt with difficult subjects and heart-wrenching experiences with respect, compassion and a yearning for God. I finished the book a better person than when I started it.
