The Polygamist's Daughter by Anna LeBaron

My father had thirteen wives and more than fifty children . . .This is the haunting memoir of Anna LeBaron, daughter of the notorious polygamist and murderer Ervil LeBaron. Ervil’s criminal activity kept Anna and her siblings constantly on the run from the FBI. Often starving, the children lived in a perpetual state of fear―and despite their numbers, Anna always felt alone. Would she ever find a place she truly belonged? Would she ever be anything other than the polygamist’s daughter?

Filled with murder, fear, and betrayal, The Polygamist’s Daughter is the harrowing, heart-wrenching story of a fatherless girl and her unwavering search for love, faith, and a place to call home.

About the Author
One of more than fifty children of infamous, polygamist cult leader, Ervil LeBaron, Anna LeBaron endured abandonment, horrific living conditions, child labor, and sexual grooming. At age thirteen, she escaped the violent cult, gave her life to Christ, and sought healing. A gifted communicator and personal growth activist, she’s passionate about helping others walk in freedom. Anna lives in the DFW Metroplex and loves being Mom to her five grown children.

I am always intrigued by non-fiction and biographies. I love to read about real people. This story intrigued me because I am always curious why people do certain things in the name of God and what they think God says and is. This story is an interesting one because Anna made it out and found the true Jesus. It is sad all the things she had to go through though.

Here is what I thought....
This story is very rough at times. I have really enjoyed parts of it and some of it is hard to read. It amazes me that a mother can allow these things to happen to her children. It also amazes me that a father could do those things in the name of God. This story is an interesting read but it takes a long time to process. I love reading the story of redemption and finding a relationship with Jesus. I'd recommend the story if you are interested in this subject. I received this book for free from Tyndale. A positive review was not required. All opinions are my own.
