Rebecca Musser empowers women around the world to escape from bondage in all its forms, because as she has said, "I was once owned, too."
Born into the FLDS, an extreme, isolated, polygamist sect of the Mormon faith, as a teenager she was forced in marriage to the 85-year-old prophet; destined to be his 19th wife of sixty-five. After enduring years of violation, upon her husband's death she escaped from his son, Warren Jeffs, when he tried to force her to remarry. On behalf of her little sisters and other voiceless young girls trapped within that culture, Rebecca testified over 20 times against cult leaders to bring evidence to light, and freedom to her people.
Today, Rebecca is the founder of ClaimRed.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing dignity, hope and healing to victims of human trafficking.
The memoir of a prophet's 19th wife, damned apostate, and witness for the prosecution of Warren Jeffs and FLDS leaders. I wrote this book because I want to use the experiences of my life as a means to educate others about rethinking possibilities and understanding the power of choice. I want others to know about the dangers of harmful belief systems that are used to enslave the minds of people just like you and me.I also want my book to inform those within the FLDS and similar situations that there really IS goodness in the outside world. My hope for all who read my book is that they will celebrate the resiliency of the human spirit, see more possibilities in their own life and most importantly, take action towards achieving their dreams.
