Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In September 2007, a packed courtroom in St. George, Utah, sat hushed as Elissa Wall, the star witness against polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs, gave captivating testimony of how Jeffs had forced her to marry her first cousin at age fourteen. This harrowing and vivid account proved to be the most compelling evidence against Jeffs, showing the harsh realities of this closed community and the lengths that Jeffs went to control the women in it. Now, in this courageous memoir, Elissa Wall tells the incredible and inspirational story of her time in the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), detailing how she emerged from its confines to help bring one of America's most notorious criminals to justice.

Synopsis:

“Both creepy…and quite moving.”
—New York Times Book Review

“Walls story couldnt be more timely.”
—People

Stolen Innocence is the gripping New York Times bestselling memoir of Elissa Wall, the courageous former member of Utahs infamous FLDS polygamist sect whose powerful courtroom testimony helped convict controversial sect leader Warren Jeffs in September 2007. At once shocking, heartbreaking, and inspiring, Walls story of subjugation and survival exposes the darkness at the root of this rebel offshoot of the Mormon faith.
