Not without her daughter ... or her seven other children either

This is the book Carolyn Jessop wrote about her escape from the polygamous cult of the Fundamentalist LDS. Click on the book, you'll go to the Amazon link.

Click here, and you'll go to a bookstore's hosting of her presentation, and the (halting and heart wrenching) reading of one of the chapters.

Until very recently it hadn't occurred to me to pray for "prisoners and captives" who hadn't done anything but be born into a cult. Here. In the USA. Carolyn Jessop is sixth generation. The FLDS has been around for over a hundred years, apparently. It's not made up. The news stories unfolding in Texas right now are real. I watched a lot of news video today. Let there be a lot more Carolyn Jessops in the weeks and months ahead.
