Review: The Polygamist's Daughter

{necessary information} I received this book as a try-me from Tyndale Publishers and the opinions expressed in this blog are mine alone and not those of the author or publisher


{transparency} As I am writing this blog, it is #enditmovement (<---from the website): 
As seen in the picture above, people wear a red x on their hand to raise awareness in daily life, and in sharing with social media circles. It was apropos that I finished this book ( it only took me two days) on the day of this movement. Anna speaks about the slavery she had to endure - child labor and seeing family members (without saying it) trafficked for the gains of her father. This is still happening in our own country. This is still happening in our backyards. 

SLAVERY IS STILL ALIVE AND TAKES MANY FORMS. 
SLAVERY IS STILL ALIVE AND HAPPENING ALL AROUND YOU.


{review: The Polygamist Daughter} WOW! I have had a long relationship of loving to read but in transparency I have not read the fullness of a book in probably 6 years ( which might surprise you by the amount of reviews I have done and launch teams I have been a part of) but I COULD NOT WOULD NOT put this book down. Anna LeBaron(<--- check out her website) writes the raw and captivating story of her up bringing in her father Ervil LeBarons' polygamist cult. She shines light on the cracks she fell through as a child in the public education system, the neglect, slavery, and abuse she suffered at the hands of her family and family friends, and the path she took to find who she was and whose she was. Don't let the size of the book scare you, she has spread the book into 35 riveting chapters that allow for digesting and breaks( if you can handle putting it down)

{recommendation and information} This book releases March 21st, 2017 and can be pre-ordered by going to AMAZON, BARNES AND NOBLES  or TYNDALE links. I highly reccomend this for mature (18+ years old and older) females but also great for males too. For anyone younger, I would reccomend only under adult supervision/pre-reading. Would be great as a discussion/book club book and as deeper research into helping understand the life of those who have escaped polygamy.
