  • Stolen Innocence: My Story of Growing Up in a Polygamous Sect, Becoming a Teenage Bride, and Breaking Free of Warren Jeffs

    Story
    (202)

    In September 2007, Elissa Wall, the star witness against polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs, gave captivating testimony of how Jeffs forced her to marry her first cousin at age 14. This harrowing account proved to be the most compelling evidence against Jeffs, showing the harsh realities of this closed community and the lengths to which Jeffs went in order to control the sect's women. Now, in this courageous memoir, Wall tells the incredible story of how she emerged from the confines of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints and helped bring one of America's most notorious criminals to justice.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Elissa Wall and Lisa Pulitzer and/or Renée Raudman?

    I would in e-book format or with a different narrator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator's voice was to high pitches and she attempted to do men voices and little girl voices which was very distracting.


    Was Stolen Innocence worth the listening time?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Over all an okay audio book which would have been better with a different approach to the reading, and the story was a little drawn out but riveting none the less.
