Wall does a good job of explaining the beliefs of the FLDS church for those of us who are unfamiliar with the religion, and she does so in a straightforward manner that is neither pro-FLDS nor bitter or angry.

Synopsis

“Both creepy…and quite moving.”
New York Times Book Review

“Wall’s story couldn’t be more timely.”
People

Stolen Innocence is the gripping New York Times bestselling memoir of Elissa Wall, the courageous former member of Utah’s infamous FLDS polygamist sect whose powerful courtroom testimony helped convict controversial sect leader Warren Jeffs in September 2007. At once shocking, heartbreaking, and inspiring, Wall’s story of subjugation and survival exposes the darkness at the root of this rebel offshoot of the Mormon faith.

...it took me ages to get through it. And, to me, it's a pretty good example of how not to write a memoir. Boring. Boring. Did I mention...boring?
