Description
Rebecca Musser grew up in fear, concealing her family's polygamous lifestyle. She received a rigorous education at Alta Academy, the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' school headed by Warren Jeffs. In her teens, she became the nineteenth wife of her people's prophet: eighty-five-year-old Rulon Jeffs, Warren's father. Sickened by the abuse she suffered and saw around her, she pulled off a daring escape. The church, however, had a way of pulling her back in, and by 2007 Rebecca had no choice but to take the witness stand against the FLDS in order to protect other young girls from being forced to marry at shockingly young ages.
