The Five


Escape by Carolyn Jessop

A peek inside the FLDS polygamist sect told from a very personal perspective. Carolyn was born, raised, and married in this secretive society. While not much of a writer, I did find this book riveting. While I knew a bit about this type of Mormonism, I had no idea the extent of the abuse and brainwashing that exists in this cult. Carolyn paints a very sad picture. One that got me thinking about how lucky I have been in my life to be born as I was and married as I am. And one that got me thinking that we need to fight more for these helpless victims.


The birds singing. It really is going to be summer soon!


Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. It's a relatively light recipe. I'll share it soon.


Duh. The Crisp!


Gardening books. I'm working on so many outdoor plantings, my head is spinning! The books are keeping me organized.
