    Always seeking to be an obedient Priesthood girl, in her teens Rebecca Musser became the nineteenth wife of her people's prophet: 85-year-old Rulon Jeffs. Finally sickened by the abuse she suffered and saw around her, she pulled off a daring escape and sought to build a new life and family.

    Briley says: "Compelling and emotional read"
    "Compelling yet sad story"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, gives real insight into the FLDS church in a frightening yet real story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rebecca, obviously as the story was from her.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rebecca Musser’s performances?

    No. The reading was way too dramatic which really distracted from the story. When Brooks and the other Texas characters were introduced things got worse in her attempt to imitate them. At one point I almost stopped listening. A different narrator would have been a better choice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, this book could have used some additional editing as many parts seemed like excess information that didn't pertain to the message of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall good book, frightening story especially since it's true.
