Book - Escape - Carolyn Jessop

Description from Wikipedia - Escape is a book by Carolyn Jessop and Laura Palmer. It discusses Jessop's difficult upbringing in the FLDS polygamist church and the division that took place in that church in the 1970s and '80s. According to her story, at age 18 she was forced into a marriage with a 50-year-old man, Merril Jessop, who already had three other wives.


I found the book very scary and very eye opening. It is amazing that there are people in this world that are living like this. I was intriged by the group after they made the news. What she talked about in the book was about what I expected to hear, but there were still things that shocked me.
