This story is both factual and informative. What these women and children endured at the hands of a monster they trusted, is heartbreaking. What they believed they worshipped was not religion, it was brainwashing, manipulation and plain and simple a cult! I mostly read true crime, but this book has opened me up to whole different genre. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the truth about Warren Jeffs and how he manipulated and took the innocence from so many people.
I love true stories about people growing up in cults and this one did not disappoint. It's easy to judge everything about these cults as bad from the outside, and to an extent a lot of it is truly horrible. However, this book allows you to peek inside and see what it's like growing up in such a cult (the good and the bad) and it's well worth the read!
