Les Innocents gAood read well written and interesting Sad and angering at times
considering how these women were forced to live in such hardship the conditions t I read Shattered Dreams by Susan Ray s former sister wife Irene Spencer and was interested to read an alternative perspective on the same family It was especially interesting to et another perspective on Irene and on their shared husband Verlan LeBaron although having said that I think this book to be not as well written or humorous as Shattered Dreams Susan Ray also admits that there are times she condenses stories making you uestion the reliability However if you find polygamy interesting and want a book that ives the perspective of a child bride this book may well be interesting to you but I m afriad it won t be a regular on my re read list This book was so well written This book covers so much detail from start to finish I have a hard time understanding how a young irl could be in love with an older man as she was And the thought of sharing a man with so many other women is just ross But if that s all you Know Than It Is What than it is what is Really interesting story Excellent book I saw Susan Ray Schmidt on Rachael Ray one day and thought that seems like an interesting story I dont have a ton of time to read as I have a toddler but once I opened the have a ton of time to read as I have a toddler but once I opened the and began reading I had a hard time putting it down I found myself reading at every second I had to spare I havent read a book that had me so interested in continuing to read like this one before I was so ignorant as to what people in polygamous relationships The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States go through Lots of hardships in that type of relationship Susan Ray is an amazing woman in my opinion and Iive her all the credit I would highly recommend this book to anyone The only downfall in my opinion is the lack of pictures She has some pictures in the book but a picture of all the wives other than the front cover would have been nice I have searched online about this particular colony but there is not much to find When I was done with this book A RIVETING MEMOIR OF LIFE INSIDE ONE OF NORTH AMERICASMOST NOTORIOUS POLYGAMOUS CULTS She had no choice in the matternone of the irls did Her mission was to ive birth to and raise many children in devoted service to a shared husband Susan was fifteen years old when she became the sixth wife of Verlan LeBaron one of the leaders of a rogue Mormon cult who was engaged in a blood feud with his brot.
