Whilst I am sorry about and sad for any victims, I hope they find some sort of catharsis, peace, hope or value in their lives having shared it with the world at large.
The theme of this book is one of acceptance of polygamy as one of the requirements of a particular religion/creed, which is passed down through the generations, regardless of "modern life".
Honestly told with some humour.
What has been done over time and in the present day in the name of religion or cultural belief whatever the faith or creed leads me to believe that we have learnt nothing about supporting those who are being or have been abused in the name of religion or culture. Wherever they may live, in the so called "free world".
How sad is that?
It’s a very personal memoir, a real cry from the heart, and it seems churlish to criticise it. I certainly feel uncomfortable doing so. However, this could have been a much better book and possibly had even more impact if it had been more effectively edited. There’s just too much detail, and it bogs the reader down. The writing is uneven and often repetitious, and overall it’s a disjointed and disorganised account. I accept that it’s not a literary work, and shouldn’t be judged by the same standards, and my heart goes out to the author who has been through so much. But I felt alienated by the end of the book because of its rambling nature, and not as moved as I should have been. However, it’s an important story and we must be grateful to Ms Decker that she was brave enough to tell it.
