Join Doubleday Book Club for a great deal on STOLEN INNOCENCE
Born into the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints, it never occurs to Elissa Wall to question why her father has three wives. But at 14, Elissa is ordered to marry her cousin, and suddenly her eyes fly wide open....
In this shocking memoir, Elissa reveals the continual rape and abuse she suffered during her two years of marriage that was virtually ignored by the church and its “prophet,” Warren Jeffs. He finally released Elissa, but his cruel indifference to her suffering would come back to haunt him; in the State of Utah's case against Jeffs, it is her stunning testimony that brings him down.
Stolen Innocence reveals polygamy's sordid secrets and the courageous heart of a young woman determined to reclaim her life.
