this from my library for a long time I m so glad I finally was able to read this It is a testament to the human spirit that anyone was able to survive this childhood and come out of it with such personal strength and any positive view of their life Recommended Geez Louise This is a heartbreaking memoir that made me sad and mad over and over again Ruth Wariner s mother was a member of the LeBaron Mormon fundamentalist church based in Mexico Ruth was the fourth of 10 children Her father My Indian Kitchen died when she was a baby and her mother then became the second wife of a man who eventually had four wives and 24 children There is no uestion that Ruth loved her mother but as she recounts her story sheoesn t present a rosy picture of the world in which her mother raised her Ruth

detail how her mother was completely ill euipped both emotionally and financially to care for so many children And how her stepfather well there are no words other than swear words toescribe her stepfather The only silver lining is Ruth s strong spirit and the supernatural edication she and her siblings had for each other At times Ruth s story was almost unbearable If you have the stomach for such sad stories this is well worth reading Ruth tells her story in a way that brings her childhood to life in lively and credible etail But oh man be prepared to be absolutely heartbroken and

LaBaron was the founder in 1944 I ve read other stories and seen movies of polygam My heart goes out to this young woman for her honesty strength and courage in the writing of this memoir I no matter how much I read will ever understand the mindset of women who join or become involved in cults or religions such as these when there is so little of benefit to themselves and their when there is so little of benefit to themselves and their That this mother loved her children is apparent she worked incredibly hard tried to make things special at times yet failed "to efend them when they needed her most I honestly on t get it Parts of this story made "defend them when they needed her most I honestly on t get it Parts of this story made so angry the welfare scams for instance the abuse for another other parts parts so sad Divine Magnetic Lands definitely affects the readers emotionsThe rawness and the unsentimental way this young woman has of telling her story is wrenching not sure I

The Sound of GravelHoly Moses this book just about The Club of Angels destroyed meThis book isn t a TLC show and readers going into with a certain sense of schadenfreude about polygamist compounds are going to beisappointed In the end this is a tale of what happens when people pursue selfish Blue Skies and Gunfire desires like religious fervor ideological purity and attention from a lover over the well being of their children The themes that prevail throughout this book hit a lot closer to home than LeBaron MexicoLeBaron is the remote location Ruth Wariner s grandfather Alma LeBaron chose as the home for his polygamist cult The Firstborns as the group becomes known believed the modern Mormon church had lost its way and that polygamist marriage was one of God s most importantecrees as well as the only path to salvation They refer to the United States as Babylon and they feel God will sweep Forced Feminization (The League of Dominant Women down from the heavens anyay now to smote it No

the next and when they are in Mexico they still have to come back to the US freuently to claim benefits As a single mother Ruth s mother collect food stamps and other types of taxpayer aid The Firstborns see nothing wrong with living off the teat of BabylonI was Serving Up Secrecy (Ladies of Westside definitely left with mixed feelings about Ruth s mother You could tell she loved her children but she wasn t willing to fight for them when it counted It seemed like the children she had the pressure put on her by the polygamist compound lifestyle the she lost her free thinking spirit It s hard to understand why she put so much faith in Lane when he made a fool of her time and time again and why sheidn t protect her children But then I have to wonder she owned total responsibility for her actions when she was so brainwashed and beat A Wartime Nurse downThrough this tumultuous tale it becomes ever clear that Ruth is a survivor She endures suffering and loss than most andoes so with admirable strength By the end of the book I was at the edge of my seat waiting to see if she would escape the cult I Split don t think I ve come across a memoir where I felt so invested in seeing the author getting a happy ending I highly recommend this Oh good heavens above I read this book voraciously ignoring the rest of my life completely Ruth Wariner s courage is inconceivable She grew up in a fanatical Mormon polygamist Doomsday cult in Mexico The hardships such a lame word for what she endured were recounted without a single shred of self pity She shares her riveting life story from her earliest memories as a child to her life as an adult Not enough about her current life so I m hoping for a seuelRuth s mother was totally incapable of showing her what happiness looked like she could only show her how to barely survive Her mother believed with blind faith that when you reoing what God wants you to When Stories Clash do it will always work out for the best She told Ruth not to worry that God will always take care of us It felt to me like God could haveone a better job of looking after these efenseless children Ruth later reflected about how little mom asked of the world and how even that had been too much for the world to give As a reader I was not nearly "As Generous As Ruth About "generous as Ruth about her mother s "shortcomings For me she committed the unforgivable sin of choosing not to protect "For me she committed the unforgivable sin of choosing not to protect children What chance id I have of being heard by the leaders of a church who believed men were in training to be Gods Women were at the mercy of men who went from one wife to the next meeting no one s needs but their own Maria Ruth s half sister was instrumental in planting the radical idea that Ruth s and her futures could possibly hold some personal choices Her grandparents were also much needed guiding lights This book made me cry and I hardly ever cry over books I read There is enough in real life to cry over Thank heavens for the epilogue as I had to know what the future held for my friend Ruth I will have to choose this book to The Extra Cadaver Murder discuss with my book

that much to say that I am interested in reading about But when I heard about The Sound of Gravel I was instantly intrigued this is not your run of the mill memoir This one will knock you off your feet Ruth Wariner is about my age I think I m a little older than her and she experienced in her early years than older than her and she experienced in her early years than of us thankfully will experience in our entire lives This is the story of being raised in a polygamist family and it is one of those stories that is so harrowing you can t believe it isn t fiction the product of someone s imagination I lost count of how many times I audibly said Jesus Christ while I was reading and I teared up several times something I haven t one since reading A Little Life What makes this book fascinating goes well beyond the voyeuristic aspects of looking at someone else s upbringing that was so vastly ifferent than your own but how to Wariner and her siblings this was normal life They Dark Ties (Broken Saints Society didn t know until they started to get older and spent time with their maternal grandparents that things weren t uite right And for living in such poverty and having so few material comforts there is much power in the simple basic things we can all relate to when Wariner recalls the smell of the strawberry shampoo and the feeling of being toweled off by her mom
