I haven't read Jessop's first book about her escape from the FLDS, but I don't think that was necessary to understand this one. The first part focuses on the raid on the Texas compound, which ultimately resulted in the abused children being returned, while the second is more fragmented, discussing her time since leaving the cult and also snippets of the time spent in it. Jessop comes across as a strong and fascinating person, which made the read more enjoyable. It's easier to focus on one likeable individual than the enormity of just how many women and children are caught in the FLDS web. ( )

If you read "Escape" you'll want to read this one as well. It was a bit slow to me personally sometimes but it is very much worth the read because you get to see how she actually did TRIUMPH over her past & her ex husband and her so called "sister wives". ( )

Better than the first book. It shares material with the first book but not as much as some reviewers mentioned. ( )

Not the best written book, but a fascinating topic. Follow up to her memoir, Escape. ( )

Five years after Carolyn Jessop escaped from the FLDS (Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints... i.e. polygamist Mormons, where she had grown up and lived all of her 35 years), with her eight children, there was a raid on an FLDS ranch in Texas and over 400 women and children were removed. The majority of people at the ranch were Merril Jessop's family (Merril was Carolyn's FLDS husband and a “higher-up” in the cult at the time). The first half of this book recounts Carolyn's reactions, actions, testimonies, etc. following that raid. The second half of the book updates us on how she and her children fared after the escape.

I really liked this. There was a brief section in the middle, as she switched from discussing the raid/trial, etc to discussing her life outside the cult, where I wasn't quite as interested, but that picked up again for me after a bit. I listened to the audio (as I did for Escape) and I liked the narrator. She, and/or the subject matter, held my attention quite well. I do feel badly for her oldest daughter, Betty, who decided to return to the FLDS as soon as she turned 18. ( )

This book is dedicated to everyone who gave their all to protect the FLDS children in the aftermath of the raid on the YFZ Ranch. People drove themselves past the point of exhaustion day after day and week after week because they believed FLDS children deserve to live in freedom and security like every other American child.



This book is also dedicated to my children -- Arthur, Betty, LuAnne, Patrick, Andrew, Merrilee, Harrison, and Bryson -- who center my life in a love that knows no bounds and grows stronger every day. And to Brian Moroney, who makes me laugh and never lets me forget that I am loved unconditionally, I dedicate this book to you, too. You help make our family a triumph.
