This is a compelling inside look into an abusive polygamist society. Carolyn Jessup's courage and determination to escape abuse of herself and her children is an inspiration to anyone in difficult circumstances.
Carolyn Jessop was raised in a poligamist family. She was married at 18 to a 56 year old man with three other wives. She proceed to have eight children in her marriage. She was dominated in this family by a sister wife and her husband. Her life and her children's were placed in danger by her uncaring husband. She was mistreated repeatedly, as were her children. When Warren Jeffs became the 'Prophet' Carolyn realized she must get herself and her children out of the situation. This is a fascinating look at a secretive cult lifestyle. The book is fascinating and hard to put down. Highly recommended.
When I saw this book in my local bookstore I was drawn to it immediately. I purchased it but didn't expect very much of the book, something boring and mildly interesting. Man was I wrong!
"Escape" is the story of Carolyn Jessop. From her early childhood; where she was born into the world of the FLDS, to her marriage to one of the more powerful men of the faith, to her eventual escape. It's incredibly well written and extremely gripping story. Her journey is incredible and gives you a great inside look at a group of people that are otherwise unknown and secluded.
Once I picked up the book I could not put it down, I've reread it twice since I purchased it three months ago and I still cannot believe the story. I highly recommend for anyone that is interested in strong women, or cults.
