STOLEN INNOCENCE: MY STORY OF GROWING UP IN A POLYGAMOUS SECT, BECOMING A TEENAGE BRIDE, AND BREAKING FREE OF WARREN JEFFS: Elissa Wall: William Morrow Publishing: Biography: 448 pgs.
This is a timely memoir that gives an in-depth look into the secretive lives of the FLDS community. Elissa was married off at the age of 14 to her first cousin. Her family experienced their share of tragedy at the hands of Warren Jeffs, including having him remove the entire family from their father and not being allowed to say goodbye. She begged Warren and his father not to force her to marry, but to no avail.
Anyone reading this will be happy for Elissa that she and most of her siblings were all brave enough to leave the FLDS church and create a new life for themselves.
