Carolyn Jessop is a former member of a radical polygamist cult and author of the newly published book, Escape. At the age of 18 she was married (by consequence of a divine proclamation) to a man 32 years her senior. In the fifteen years of her marriage, she had eight children. She was one of four wives. All told, they had more than 50 combined children. The book gives the details of her daring escape and how she won her court case against the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter–Day Saints (FLDS) and was granted custody of her children.
