    Heart-rending. Haunting. Hopeful. The Polygamist’s Daughter embodies all three of those words. Anna LeBaron is telling her story of escape from her father, Ervil LeBaron’s, violent polygamist cult. I don’t want to give away any spoilers here. This is a story that can only be told (jus...

    Few stories have captured my interest so thoroughly that I read them all the way through into the wee hours of the morning, but from the very first words, I was heavily invested in Anna LeBaron's story and its outcome...more so because it is a true story.The vignettes of LeBaron's young life in a po...

    Made for TV!From the first sentence in the Prologue, I was hooked! "At age nine, I had forty-nine siblings."This story held my attention from the very start. The web of lies, FBI raids, abuse, neglect, murders and redemption...it was hard to process the fact that I WAS NOT READING FICTION! It reads ...

    I'm not a huge fan of non-fiction. I prefer getting lost in other worlds and living vicariously through those characters. Yesterday, with chocolates and coffee by my side and kitty curled up sleeping on my lap I sat down to read the Anna LeBaron's memoir, "The Polygamist's Daughter." I could NOT PU...

    I started this book this morning, thinking I could read a few chapters before my daily routine began-- and had to tear myself away before I started chapter 25! You will NOT want to put this down... and you may want to re-read it immediately after! Anna LeBaron (with help of Leslie Wilson) beautifull...

    I finished this book in two sittings. It would have been one sitting, but I had to go to work. This book has it all: part autobiography, part scandal, part murder mystery, part history. Above all, it is a story of redemption and triumph of the human spirit through the grace of God. A must-read.NOTE:...

    An amazing story beautifully written. I was familiar with the LeBaron saga from reading Irene Spencer's books, as well as Ruth Wariner's Sound of Gravel. I wondered how and what Ervil LeBaron's family members went through as he was on the run. Anna tells her story and it is disturbing at times to re...
