The Witness Wore Red
The Witness Wore Red The 19th Wife Who Brought Polygamous Cult Leaders to Justice By Musser, Rebecca Book - 2013 | First edition

Fundamentalism exists not only among some in the Muslim religion. According to this account, it is alive and well among some Christians in North America at this very moment in time. The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (FLDS) embraces a culture that confines women to the home and places them like chattel under the ownership of fathers and husbands. The number of young girls an esteemed leader of the FLDS is entitled to as wives in this earthly life is limited only by the amount of power he can wield for himself. This eye-opening account of how one young woman who escaped from the fold was able to bring the leader of this group to justice is a must read.
