Llewellyn Media attention has focused on the January 2001 tragic death of a polygamist toddler, when medical attention allegedly was not sought until too late. And that occurred on the heels of the prosecution of Utah polygamist Tom Green, alleging Rape of a Child and bigamy. What is the truth of Utah polygamy? Should it be legalized? Do women and children risk death because they are afraid of seeking urgent medical care? Are child brides marketed to old men? Are there good and bad polygamists?

A growing number of people enter polygamy each year. Travel that world through a modern day family that leaves traditional Mormonism and enters polygamy, the father excited, the mother and teenagers deeply troubled. Meet the adult and teenage cliques of the governing "ellte" families, the "second-class" families, the "obedient" women who believe they must be subservient in every way, and finally the strong-willed women who use their intrinsic powers to develop a life of freedom and choice within the group. Meet the men and their different uses of religious power over the women whose lives they control -- and those they only think they control. In the end will these teenagers and their mother give up the "good life" they have created -- and their very freedom?

Laura Chapman, who grew up in the Colorado City Polygamist Group as the 25th child of 31 children, has been featured on CBS/48Hours, ABC 20/20, and In The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and in London newspapers. Believing education critical to understanding life and with double degrees in Sociology and Human Development, and a minor in Psychology, Mrs. Chapman is deeply concerned with the Colorado City group forcing all their children to withdraw from public schools.

"Llewellyn accomplishes the incredible task of exposing the many diverse dynamics of Utah polygamist groups and their members in A Teenagers Tears. The characters of the women, children, men and self-proclaimed apostles are both astounding and precise. The display of male privilege, abuse of power in leadership, and struggles within families, is triumphantly accurate. The "feminists" within the groups, however, are still captured in the basic belief thatwithout a man there is no heavenly glory in the hereafter".

Rena Mackert, formerly of the Colorado City Polygamist Group, appeared on A & E's "Inside Polygamy" documentary, "Mr. Llewellyn has effectively presented the fears of a young girl entering a lifestyle she does not understand. An e

It was hard to put this novel down. It's sad to think that this same thing is really happening to real girls in real families. I wish I had the money to help all of them get out of cults like the one in the book so they could have a chance at a happy life. After reading many books on the RLDS, I still can't see why law enforcement and gov't can't put an end to all their illegal activities. Who will stand up and fight for the girls rights? I would highly recommend this book to any one doing a study on anything from cults to women's rights.

This is an okay read, but not the best story. I think it would have been better to have put together a few true stories rather than fabricate one, since it is taken from facts the author learned.

This is a fact based fictional book written by a former polygamist insider who was once a policeman in Utah.
I feel he did a good job at portraying the struggles a young girl and her family would undergo in such a situation.Although do keep in mind, the real life model for this book was the least oppressive fundamentalist polygamist group in Utah, so although the books main character Emma went through a lot,she did not suffer some of the horrific incidents that have happened in other groups .
The dialogue was down to earth, free flowing and unpretentious.
The story was well paced and believable.
He also has a deft working knowledge of the doctrines and operations of such groups.
I recommend this book if you are interested in polygamy, Mormon Fundamentalism or just like fact based fiction.

This is a heart wrenching story of a beautiful young girl born into a middle class Mormon family whose father has made the decision for leave the comfort of their local LDS Ward, friends and family to embrace a lifestyle that will encompass lust, greed, abuse and mind control. Think for moment how you would feel if you came home one day to find that you were going to leave all that you knew and loved to be told you were going into a remote area to join a polygamist cult. Imagine that you will not be able to fulfill your dreams of college; marry the boy you love; not be able to ever think for yourself again. You will have to wear funny long dresses; wear no make up;a hairdo that even your grandmother would have a problem wearing; no TV, movies, boyfriends or girl friends of your choice.
You may think this is a fictional story, think again, this story is true and happens more often you you can imagine. Yes, the characters are fiction but the lifestyle of polygamy portrayed is true. I know; I live in Southern Utah where several thousand polygamist live. There is rape and abuse in the form of
underage "spiritual marriage" to men old enough to be their father, maybe even grandfather. It is a cult run by fear and threat. Not to obey is grounds for excommunication; your family given to another more worthy man; your mother given as a "wife" and as her daughter you would be given as his wife also. Your property and money that you earn is no longer yours to use as you want; It is communal. This is a story of one young womans courageous fight for her life and future. It is the story of a woman who loves her husband and has to make some hard choices and decisions that go against the prophets authority that states women are to submit to their husband or lose their eternal salvation and be dammed. Women are required to share their husband with one, two, three or more women called "sister wives"as is the case in this story.
If you have even a little interest in the polygamist lifestyle this is a MUST READ!!
