The Polygamist's Daughter by Anna LeBaron Review


The Polygamist's Daughter
by Anna LeBaron
w/ Leslie Wilson

About This Book:

My father had thirteen wives and more than fifty children . . .

This is the haunting memoir of Anna LeBaron, daughter of the notorious polygamist and murderer Ervil LeBaron. Ervil’s criminal activity kept Anna and her siblings constantly on the run from the FBI. Often starving, the children lived in a perpetual state of fear—and despite their numbers, Anna always felt alone. Would she ever find a place she truly belonged? Would she ever be anything other than the polygamist’s daughter?

Filled with murder, fear, and betrayal, The Polygamist’s Daughter is the harrowing, heart-wrenching story of a fatherless girl and her unwavering search for love, faith, and a place to call home.

My Thoughts on This Book:

This book was an eye opening experience and I read it in just one day. Once I picked it up her story was so riveting, I couldn't put it down until the end. You follow the life of little Anna. Just 9 years old when the story starts and living the life of polygamy with her mother, her mother's sister wives and over 40 siblings. The life of fear, death, looking over your shoulder and living in foreign countries, Anna lived a life of poverty so her mother could continue her life as the 4th wife of the famous Ervil LeBaron. Left to fend for herself and at times a child slave worker, she endured huge hardship for the sake of her families chosen life. Her father, a man who believed himself to be a prophet, lived his life to find followers and to cause harm to those that fell away from his religion even after his death.

Anna lived a life on the run, packing up frequently and with little personal possessions. By the age of 10 she found out that he father wanted to marry her off to another polygamist and was being groomed to do so when she was older. This story of a little girl searching for love and a desire to be wanted, grew up faster than she should of and saw more than any child or adult should see. This story will truly pull at your heartstrings.. Faith plays a huge factor in Anna's adult life with the ultimate grace of God.. Great book!
