So amazing

I wanted to reach through time and page and comfort the poor, neglected, abused and forgotten little girl. I wept for her. I cried for her freedom, and cheered when she found it. So many times you forget that these things actually happened to an actual person...but it did. She survived. She triumphed. And she's thrived. The Polygamists Daughter is an easy read and so worth your time.

Jaw Dropping Good!

Made for TV! From the first sentence in the Prologue, I was hooked! "At age nine, I had forty-nine siblings." This story held my attention from the very start. The web of lies, FBI raids, abuse, neglect, murders and redemption...it was hard to process the fact that I WAS NOT READING FICTION! It reads like a novel, so for those of you that prefer fiction, I would dare to assert that you will not be disappointed. Anna LeBaron, masterfully takes us on a journey through her life and draws you in, to the point where you can feel her pain, her fear and her joy. Each chapter takes you through events that no child should ever go through. How does one function as an adult in society when the love you are given as a child is actually abuse and you don't know any better? The author shares about that too! I gasped for air at times. I shed tears, both of pain and joy. I fell in love with some of the members of her family and felt such disdain for others. I was in awe from beginning to end.

The Polygamist's Daughter

I received an advanced reader copy of this book for my honest review and honest I shall be. As a huge fan of memoirs, I knew I would enjoy the read, however, I could not have predicted how drawn into every word I would be! It truly felt as if the author was sitting next to me and reciting her story. I could almost physically feel the unknowns, the fears, and the hurt as the story progressed. I actually uttered a sigh of relief when she revealed that her biological father had died, only to realize that the story was far from over! I'm sure that she could have provided gruesome details of many of the events, but appreciate the constant respect for all involved and her restraint while sharing just enough to inform. As she shared of her road to healing, it felt as if I was watching a caterpillar transform into a beautiful, joy of the Lord-filled butterfly. What a testimony! Recounting memories to tell this story could not have been an easy feat, but I greatly admire her unbelievable courage and transparency in allowing us into and learn from her life. I highly recommend this book.

Remarkable!

If you're a person who has had a rough start in life and want to read a memoir of a woman who overcame with amazing grace, or if you're a person who loves a survival story, this is the book for you. I received a copy of this book in advance in exchange for my honest review.
