Born into a polygamist cult in Mexico in 1971, Vera LaRee was one of fifty-seven children her father had with his eleven wives. Constantly told that women were inferior to men and God was to be feared, from an early age she experienced manipulation, brainwashing and sexual violation.
Married off to her deceased sister’s husband at the age of sixteen, she helped raise her sister’s children and gave birth to three of her own—truly believing what she had always been told: That a woman could not get to Heaven without a man. But hard as she tried to live “celestial marriage,” to please her husband and make peace with her life, she never felt loved, respected or valued. However, every time she silently (and secretly) dared to question the beliefs of the cult, she found herself overcome with guilt, shame, and fear. So, for years, the control that her father, husband, and their polygamist God had over her continued—but it all began to change when the seed of a single idea she read in a hidden book slowly started taking root.
