As boring as it sounds it's the truth...
We just haven't been doing much of anything besides work and school! However I wanted to let you all know what's on my nightstand... Or rather, not on the nightstand, but made me stay up all night!
Ever since my dad felt he should take us on a cruise down to Colorado City, I have been intrigued with the happenings of the FLDS church. We pulled into a tiny town, in the middle of nowhere and immediately a white truck pulled out in front of us, while a large van pulled up behind us. We stayed in this carpool until we left the town. It was truly another world. HUGE houses, but hardly any of them were finished. Rumor has it they keep it this way because you do not need to pay property tax until the entire building is finished!
I had almost thought it was an exaggeration the way that they portrayed polygamist to live. I thought truly there was no way that they actually lived this way. It was as if time had stopped here and we were in a different century... Rather than a different city.
So this book escape is about a woman who escaped from Colorado City with all of her 8 children. It is a true page turner! While my heart truly went out to the mothers and children of the "Polygamist Raid" in Texas, if this book is truly fact then that is absolutely what I believe needs to happen! I definitely recommend this book (so far).
