"Church of Lies… is a compelling and heartbreaking-- but hopeful -- read." (Kansas City Star)
It is difficult for any person not affiliated with a group likethe Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints(FLDS) to imagine the motivation for living in such a system.Jessop grew up within the strictures of the FLDS cult, subjected toits forced marriages and rampant sexual abuse. Her story is aharrowing but inspiring account of one woman’s determinationto break free. She relates in rather stark terms the horror ofgrowing up in the polygamous community, the many pleasures she wasdenied as a child as her elders pursued a pseudo-holiness,forbidding the joys of childhood but engaging in horrible acts ofpedophilia. Following her own liberation, she has worked tirelesslyand fearlessly to liberate those who want out of the group. Readerswill be repelled at some of what Jessop has to say, but in the end,they will be heartened by her efforts to free others in the grip ofthe FLDS leadership. (Feb.)
