Polygamy was abandoned by the Mormon Church in 1890 to stop the persecution of it’s members. The condition set for Utah to stop the practice of polygamy in order to join the union. Mormon Prophet Wilfred Woodruff had a vision of what the Mormon Church would become if the practice was not stopped. Some members refused to follow Church directives and continued the practice of polygamy. The Church began excommunicating members beginning in the early 1900’s for failure to stop the practice. Today, most people practicing polygamy are descendants of the early day Mormon Church. Today, many are members of the Warren Jeff’s CULT known as the FLDS Church.

REVIEW: EXCELLENT-ALBUQUERQUE NEWS TRIBUNE
This is a book written on 2 different levels. It is a well-researched book covering human trials, humiliation, jealousy, abuse and the ultimate survival of six women, one mother and five daughters, trapped in a life of sexual abuse. The women’s lifestyles acquaint them with several different polygamous groups. This book covers their innermost thoughts and dreams of what it would be like to be free. The second part of the book gives the details, statistics, and mindset of today’s polygamist leaders who consider themselves prophets and even Gods over their people. They rule with an iron fist; decide which children and wife belong to which men, picking the best women for themselves, and their word is absolute law. There is no room in polygamy for dissenters, only a life as apostates, abandonment and even death. The few men and women who manage against great odds to escape, tell tales of deprivation, starvation and beatings, but does anyone really listen? This book is well written and an easy read for those whom want both an in-depth fundamental understanding and comprehensive overview of what makes this lifestyle endure through the millennium.
