    Carolyn Jessop - Triumph

    In 2003, Carolyn Jessop, a member of the extremist Mormon sect the Fundamentalist
    Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), gathered up her children and escaped in the middle of the night to freedom. Jessop thought she had put her past firmly behind her until April 3, 2008, when the state of Texas staged a surprise raid on the Yearning for Zion Ranch, where jailed FLDS “prophet” Warren Jeffs had relocated his sect. In Triumph, Jessop tells the real story behind the raid and sets the public straight on much of the damaging misinformation that flooded the media in its aftermath. An extraordinary woman who has overcome countless challenges and tragedies in her life, Jessop shows us in this book how, in spite of everything, she has triumphed—and how you can, too, no matter what adversity you face.
