Carol Christie s Property written with the help of her now husband tells the story of her time as a church wife in an offshoot branch of Mormonism in Missouri In her novel Christie aims to give the reader a glimpse at the experiences and existance of a polygamous wife and specifically one that was brainwashed and coerced into a disturbing unwanted relationship The book is scheduled to be released April 27 2013 Christie published this novel is hopes of shedding light on the problems with polygamy the fate of those who are still trapped in this type of situation and bringing awareness to why polygamy should remain illegal be prosecuted and be thoroughly investigated by authorities I received a galley of this novel from the publisher prior to its release in exchange for an honest reviewThe book follows the traditional format of an autobiographical memoir and retells her story beginning in her late teen years when her mother seemingly goes off the deep end drops her fondness for alcohol and replaces it with an addiction to a fanatical religion She is cornered into marrying their Prophet by her own mother and is forced to abandon her own dreams of a normal life and pursuing her own interests Instead she finds herself becoming a church wife fulfilling her duties which are not limited to housekeeping childbearing and sharing a bed with her husband even at times while he is engaging in intercourse with his other wivesThe story itself is an eye opener and there is no shortage of dramatics and intrigue while delving into the world of a religious sect However throughout my reading I couldn t help but feel as though some of the writing was missing something Despite feeling as though the delivery was a little lackluster I did enjoy reading about her day to day experiences and learned than I would have otherwise known about how an intelligent woman can be manipulated into staying in an undesirable marriage with other women bearing children who have what seems to be innumerable half siblings and somehow sharing responsibility for all of them Despite the interest I had in the topic and my fondness for memoirs Christie s voice simply did not suit my preferences At times she would digress from chronological order in order to explain but in my own opinion there were times that it simply did not flow well While she did get her point across I found myself less emotionally moved than I would like to have been Christie states in the beginning of the novel she does not capitalize her references to the prophet through pronouns out of respect but one can t help but feel that way as they constantly see prophet he him and his capitalized throughout the text Between that and what felt to me as a lack of raw emotion and instead simply recalling facts I did not feel emotionally connected to her as I do the main individuals in many books written to tug the heartstrings Despite those things Christie definitely has an interesting story to tell and she does manage to keep the reader going The fact that it is a relatively short easy read also helps me to say that the book is worth the effort to finish even if it could have been a little better if it pulled the reader in a bit The bravery that it takes to recall years of abuse and openly write about it deserves respect in itself I find myself hoping that other members of the cult including her son from who she is now estranged may somehow find out about the novel and pick it up for a read If she can persuade anyone to leave the lifestyle the book will than have served its purpose

I m going to go into this review with a disclaimer that I might have enjoyed Property much better had I not read and been extremely moved by Escape and Stolen Innocence My Story of Growing Up in a Polygamous Sect Becoming a Teenage Bride and Breaking Free of Warren Jeffs a few years back Both of those books are hard acts to follow especially Escape which had me on the edge of my seat wondering how the woman was going to get out from under the clutches of her abusive husband I honestly think my body was completely wound up as I read the scene in Escape when Carolyn had only moments to execute her mad dash to safetyBut it is what it is Carol Christie s account of life in a polygamous cult was meant to be told in its own right Her experience was no less meaningful or unworthy of attention I don t want to become so blase about abusive spiritual leaders and sects to the point where I discount one person s experience as less than someone else s As a non fiction account there is a message which needs to be brought to the masses It is important for the outside world to know that abuse is happening in these closed off communitiesAs a book for the purpose of readability it was just okay Entertainment is not the key reason for reading non fiction and memoirs but I know that the compelling the read the likely I am going to want to keep reading It was easy enough for me to zip through Property because it was short But I never felt an emotional attachment to the story the way I have with other similar storiesEven with that I picked up several key notes which bear repeating If you ve ever asked yourself why people stay in situations such as these this book will clear some of that up for you When a person is raised in a sect away from mainstream information it is literally all they know Information about how to leave or even survive on the outside will never be freely given The cycle continues on and on because it is all a person knows how to do and fear is so instilled into the followers that they honestly believe the wrath of God will befall them should they try to escapeI m going to go off on a personal ramble which ties into part of my fascination with cults and alternate lifestyles A few of you know already that I ve been working on a book which features a female lead who falls in love with a cult leader This book is based from a few of my own personal experiences one with a cult group I ve interacted with one from a business in my town that I ve freuented which is run by a cult and the rest from other random experiences I ve happened upon Several years ago my husband and I vacationed in a small ski town and decided to wander into a local church one Sunday morning The pastor I use the uotes loosely because I ve known and valued many honest and true clergy members was using the pulpit to ridicule his members into submission deriding them for tasks which they did not complete He stood up there and yelled at his congregation until one of them finally jumped up and started in on the task in uestion My husband and I gaped at each other probably with our mouths open and gave the signal that we needed to exit immediately This is not an example of a functioning and healthy church This is an example of what people can find themselves pulled into for various reasons whether it s being born into the situation and not knowing any better or even in times when a person finally finds a place where they feel they belong before the true nature of what goes on is revealed Books like Property serve a purpose in the world they allow us to see how atrocities like this do happen and that we should maybe not always be so uick to turn a blind eye to themI wish that I d known what to do in the situation above Maybe my solution will be in writing about it Maybe this was the solution or even possibly therapy for the author of Property in getting her story out there While this book might not have been a grabber for me I thank her for being brave enough to come forward and I hope that she gets to reunite with loved ones and recover some of what has been lost to herOne last note I feel that polygamy should not be the focus when reading books like these Everyone who practices polygamy does so in a different way Not every person practicing polygamy is in a cult or is trying to force underage girls into marriage or is an abusive person When reading about religious sects I try to only look at the situation at hand and not use it as a base to judge everyone who participates in a lesser known lifestyle Polygamy is legal and respectively practiced in many parts of the world This book was provided from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
