Escape by Carolyn Jessop( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At 18, Carolyn Jessop was coerced into an arranged marriage with a total stranger, 32 years her senior, who already had three wives. Arranged plural marriages were part of her heritage in the radical offshoot of the Mormon Church that had settled along the Arizona-Utah border. Over the next fifteen years, Carolyn had eight children and withstood her husband's psychological abuse and the watchful eyes of his other wives. Her every move was dictated by her husband's whims--in the FLDS, a wife's compliance determines her status, and her children's, in the family. Carolyn was miserable and wanted out, but no woman had ever managed to get her children out of the FLDS. But in 2003, Carolyn chose freedom and fled with her eight children. And in 2006, her reports formed a crucial part of the case that led to the arrest of the sect's notorious leader, Warren Jeffs.--From publisher description

Wäre diese Geschichte das Drehbuch zu einem Hollywood-Film, wäre man versucht, es unter Kitsch abzulegen. Aber ist eine wahre Geschichte: Elizabeth und ihr Mann Paul, Hauptdarsteller in der Serie, Starsky and Hutch", gelten als das Traumpaar in Hollywood. Die beiden haben eine kleine Tochter und einen Sohn. Ihr Glück ist perfekt. Bloss: schon bald stellt sich heraus, dass die kleine Ariel und ihre Mutter HIV-positiv sind. Die Mutter, durch eine Blutkonserve bei der schweren Geburt infiziert, steckt ihre Tochter 1981 durch Stillen an. Die Kleine stirbt 1988. Das Szenario hat zwei interessante Aspekte: Da ist die prominente Mutter, die alle ihre Beziehungen spielen lässt, mit der Hoffnung, ihre Kinder zu retten. Sie trifft Ronald Reagan, um mehr Forschungsgelder locker zu machen, sie gründet eine Stiftung, die Forschungsgelder für Kinder mit Aids beschafft. Freundin Cher tritt an der ersten Veranstaltung auf, und schon ist die erste Million in der Kasse. Da ist aber auch die verzweifelte Prominentenfamilie, die mit aller Macht das Geheimnis Aids hüten muss, um nicht diskriminiert zu werden. Ariel wird von der Schule gewiesen, Nachbarn meiden die Familie, Kinder dürfen nicht mehr bei den Glasers spielen. Die doppelbödige Moral der wohlanständigen Leute wird zur riesigen Belastung für die Betroffenen. Das einzige, was Elizabeth wirklich hilft, ist die Solidarität von Freunden, Ärzten, Krankenschwestern und einem Rabbi. Ein amerikanisches Lehrstück voll mit interessanten Informationen, wenn auch manchmal etwas langfädig
