Okay it's possible I just don't get the whole polygamy thing, but after reading this book - I really don't want to. What a horrendous nightmare. I so enjoyed Carolyn Jessops account of her life in the FLDS and her awesome adventure to escape what she knew was wrong for her and her children. My favorite part by far was when she was being "disobedient" to the prisethood (ie her husband) and they had to go before the leadership so she could get straightened out and be a better wife. The guy in charge warned her that she was risking her placement in the afterlife by disobeying her husband. She replied, "I would rather go to Hell than be married to that man for all of eternity!" He was speechless! It really is an incredible true story.
