    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Witness Wore Red to be better than the print version?

    It took some getting used to listening to Rebecca's voice, though I appreciate her struggle. The southern accent she performed at times was painful to listen too. But I realize narration is a talent not everyone possesses. I think the written version would be better.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Witness Wore Red?

    When she was free of the shackles and was able to live the life God gifted her. I can't imagine women living in slavery in this day and age. It's very disturbing. A handful of self satisfying Religious Dictators using the promise of eternal salvation to manipulate so many vulnerable women. While the US Government financially supports these women and children. A government they detest. It's infuriating. Hard to believe this goes on in this country.

  • The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II

    At the height of World War II, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was home to 75,000 residents, consuming more electricity than New York City. But to most of the world, the town did not exist. Thousands of civilians - many of them young women from small towns across the South - were recruited to this secret city, enticed by solid wages and the promise of war-ending work. Kept very much in the dark, few would ever guess the true nature of the tasks they performed each day in the hulking factories in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains.

    Would you try another book from Denise Kiernan and/or Cassandra Campbell?

    Very disappointed, character development was very poor, too many to keep track of. Boring, surprisingly. If I never hear the word tube alloy it will be too soon. Interesting history but not really interesting enough for a book.

    Loni Ann, Cynthia, Lauren, Cheryl, and Sara seemed to have it all - beauty, wealth, children, and a husband who they believed to be this perfect man - Brad Cunningham. He was handsome, charismatic, and mysterious. They adored him and tried to give him all he wanted. But he wanted everything: sex, money, and it seemed, their very lives. How long would it take before he finally got what he deserved?

    What did you love best about Dead by Sunset?

    At first I wasn't sure if I liked the narrator, but the story is so engrossing I kept listening. It's amazing that one woman-hating psycho could get away with destroying lives of women for so many years. If you like true crime this is one for you.


    Did Richard Ferrone do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I missed Laura Merlington.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I gasped a lot at this story. Unimaginable.

    There isn't much fun in the sun when a billionaire real estate tycoon is found murdered on the Tilt-a-Whirl at a seedy seaside amusement park in the otherwise quiet summer tourist town of Sea Haven. John Ceepak, a former MP just back from Iraq, has just joined the Sea Haven police department. The job offer came from an old Army buddy who hoped to give Ceepak at least a summer's worth of rest and relaxation to help him forget the horrors of war. Instead, Ceepak will head up the murder investigation.

    If you think ghosts are only responsible for hauntings, think again. The Demonologist reveals the grave religious process behind supernatural events and how it can happen to you. Used as a text in seminaries and classrooms, this is one book you can't put down. For over five decades, Ed and Loraine Warren have been considered America's foremost experts on demonology and exorcism. With over 3,000 investigations to their credit, they reveal what actually breaks the peace in haunted houses. Don't miss the Warrens in the new blockbuster movie The Conjuring.

    It had a hold on me from beginning to end. It is by far her best I've read. The narration by the cast of voices was excellently cast. If you like historical fiction this book will be the one you can't put down.
