Very interesting and informative read. Very disturbing and made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Those poor children. I wish I could rescue them all. Great book!

The photos in the centre of the book of cult leader Warren Jeffs and his "bride" Merrianne Jessop are among the creepiest photos I've ever seen. A frustrating situation but some of the people in this book have done inspiring things to help the vicitims in Short Creek.

Wow, an extreme read - extremely disturbing and extremely eye opening. An extremely good book about an extreme religion, that every American should be aware of.
