Stolen Innocence - Elissa Wall with Lisa Pulitzer
The subtitle of this book is My Story of Growing Up in a Polygamous Sect, Becoming a Teenage Bride, and Breaking Free of Warren Jeffs, and as with the previous book, that sums it up well. This book appalled me, as I simply cannot understand how someone can stand by and allow someone to abuse their children. I just can't. I applaud the author for being strong enough to break free from the cult she was born into, and I'm glad that so many of her siblings have also managed to do so. I hope she can have a wonderful life now, and I'm sure she will, as she is a strong person.
