Cult Insanity: Review and Giveaway



What is life like in a polygamous community? If you want the answer to that question, you want to read Cult Insanity, written by a woman who lived in a polygamous marriage for twenty-eight years, during which she gave birth to thirteen kids. She traces her life from when she was first married through all sorts of violence by the leader of her community. She writes of women driven insane and men who believed they were the prophets of God and above the law.
