Escape By Carolyn Jessop

Escape By Carolyn Jessop free pdf download. Escape is a powerful memoir by Carolyn Jessop that offers an insider’s perspective on life within an extreme American religious sect. At the tender age of eighteen, Carolyn was forced into a marriage with a man who was thirty-two years her senior. She was a member of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), a radical branch of the Mormon Church.

Over a span of fifteen years, Carolyn bore eight children and suffered psychological abuse from her husband. In 2003, she made the brave decision to escape her oppressive life, fleeing with her eight children and a mere $20 in her pocket. “Escape” reveals a world akin to a prison camp, constructed by religious extremists.

Her testimonies to the Utah attorney general in 2006 played a pivotal role in the case that led to the arrest of the infamous leader of the sect, Warren Jeffs. The book was first published on October 16, 2007.
