I can't add too much to what others have already said. I have read 'Keep sweet', 'Stolen innocence', and 'The witness wore red' so far and this book is -in my opinion- the most well rounded. She gives information on various women, about happenings in(mostly)Canada and the US, the leaders on both sides and lots more. If you are interested in learning about the FLDS - this is the book to start with. It will give you a foundation and understanding that none of the other books will. I will continue to read the books by others who have left as I believe that buying a book so they get a few royalties is the least I can do. I encourage others to do the same. They are all incredible stories.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Ian Gordon Malcomson HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 13 2008
Format: Hardcover
Vancouver Sun journalist, Daphne Bramham, has done a first-rate job in exposing the dark, dirty secrets of the Blackmore polygamist activities at Bountiful over the last half century. Based on her findings, this colony is anything but an innocent experiment in alternative living involving patriarchal leadeship that indulges in the innocent pursuits of love through a harem of vestal virgins. What Bramham describes about the FLDS(Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints)operations both in Bountiful and down in Colorado City is enough to make one wonder why big government has taken so long to intervene and lay charges against Warren Jeff, the present leader of the movement, and Winston Blackmore, its Canadian head. The list of reported sex offences by these two men, as covered of US and Canadian law, are so legion as to cause a public outcry, which is now only being acted on by Texas and Utah officials. Statutory rape, rape of a minor, polygamy, kidnapping and unlawful restraint are just a few charges that Warren Jeffs has just been convicted of while Blackmore continues to thumb his nose at the authorities this side of the border. The book elaborates on the founding 'principle' of the movement - the male calling to honor God's request to liberate the countless disembodied pre-existing spirits - and how it came to set up in both the US and Canada. As the Bountiful Community has expanded over the years, a number of serious problems have set in: rivalries between family lines that included the male patriarchs openly feuding, the enabling wives feeling jealous and oppressed, and whole generations of children invariably losing touch with parents.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
Well done, Daphne Bramham! Finally, a journalist who gives a damn enough to expose the disgustingly sexist and corrupt system that exists within the polygamous Mormon sect of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I couldn't agree more with Ms. Bramham's statement that while Canadian troops are currently in Afghanistan, in part to defend that country's women and children's rights, everyone seems to tolerate the tyranny imposed on women and children by the FLDS on North American soil. As a Canadian, I'm furious.
