Following up on her first book about the FLDS, the author goes into much more detail about how the "church" is really a front for organized crime; and how Texas dropped the ball in 2008 when it unsuccessfully seized more than 400 children from the YFZ compound. Demoralizing but still optimistic.

The story of Carolyn's life after cult is worth reading. However, her writing style is quite simplistic and somewhat detached which sometimes makes it difficult to really get into, even for nonfiction. Overall, I'm glad I read it, but if the writing style were more sympathetic and not so detached, it would have taken me a day or two to read rather than a bit over a week of running to other books for better pacing/emotional pull/etc.

not as good as her first book. she speaks more of those things that helped her move ahead, personal growth. And she spoke alot about the child apprehension in Texas of over 400 children from Warren Jeffs' compound. Her first book was much more personal and interesting.
