The Witness Wore Red: The 19th Wife Who Brought Polygamous Cult Leaders to Justice - Rebecca Musser, M. Bridget Cook

Rebecca Musser was born into the FLDS (Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) and she was raised to be completely obedient to men.

At 19 Rebecca had to marry Rulon Jeffs, who was in his 80s and the Prophet at the time. After his death when she was 27, Rebecca decided to escape before she was forced to remarry.

I've read a few other biographies of women who escaped from polygamous sects and this one was different because Rebecca was very involved in the raid that happened in Texas. Both Flora and Carolyn Jessop's books had details about the raid, but Rebecca was actually there and it was interesting to read what happened from someone who was there.

The book was well-written and offered great insight into the FLDS and their beliefs. I'm glad Rebecca was able to escape that life and has continued to try to help girls who have been through similar situations.
