What Are We Reading This Week?
JULIE: "Favorite Wife," by Susan Ray Schmidt
This is about a strange sect of Mormonism that broke off from the church in the '60s and moved down to Mexico. The author was one of the leader's several plural wives, and she discusses what its like to be married off to a man twice your age at 14 as the
church is dealing with in-fighting, internal strife and murder.
I recommend this to ... anyone who's really curious about what it's like
to live in a cult.
