“Kim Taylor is a gifted story teller - and what a story she tells in ‘Daughters of Zion’! Raised in a notorious polygamous sect, daily breathing in all the seductions and delusions of plural-marriage theology, Kim nevertheless couldn’t ever swallow the lie completely. Guided by a strong conscience and prodded by tragedy after tragedy she eventually broke out of the psychological prison of polygamous pseudo-religion...”
—David Kupelian, author of The Marketing of Evil
“It was curiosity about polygamy that led me to pick up this book, but it is the author’s craft at storytelling that made it impossible to put it down. Kim’s riveting, honest portrayal of her courageous search for deliverance from what she eventually recognized as dangerous dogma cloaked as religious truths, is both intriguing and inspiring”.”
—Mary Ann Cook, speaker, author of Honey I’m Home For Good!
“An unbelievable story, told with compassion. Taylor is a natural storyteller. I couldn't put it down!”
—C. Hewitt, columnist, author of Parenting Through The Eyes Of A Child.
“In the days following his visit, I contemplated Mark Chynoweth’s warning. For years he had been like a kind and cheerful brother to me–was he now capable of extreme violence in the name of religion?

had taken blood covenants with one another, promising to carry out his murderous death threats, chilled my heart and filled me with dread.”
