Breaking Free: How I Escaped My Father-Warren Jeffs-Polygamy, and the FLDS Cult

In this searing memoir of survival in the spirit of Stolen Innocence, the daughter of Warren Jeffs, the self-proclaimed Prophet of the FLDS Church, takes you deep inside the secretive polygamist Mormon fundamentalist cult run by her family and how she escaped it.Born into the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Rachel Jeffs was raised in a strict patriarchal culture defined by subordinate sister wives and men they must obey. No one in this radical splinter sect of the Mormon Church was more powerful or terrifying than its leader Warren JeffsRachels father.Living outside mainstream Mormonism and federal law, Jeffs arranged marriages between under-age girls and middle-aged and elderly members of his congregation. In 2006, he gained international notoriety when the FBI placed him on its Ten Most Wanted List. Though he is serving a life sentence for child sexual assault, Jeffs iron grip on the church remains firm, and his edicts to his followers increasingly restrictive and bizarre.In Breaking Free, Rachel blows the lid off this taciturn community made famous by John Krakauers bestselling Under the Banner of Heaven to offer a harrowing look at her life with Warren Jeffs, and the years of physical and emotional abuse she suffered. Sexually assaulted, compelled into an arranged polygamous marriage, locked away in "houses of hiding" as punishment for perceived transgressions, and physically separated from her children, Rachel, Jeffs first plural daughter by his second of more than fifty wives, eventually found the courage to leave the church in 2015. But Breaking Free is not only her storyRachels experiences illuminate those of her family and the countless others who remain trapped in the strange world she left behind.A shocking and mesmerizing memoir of faith, abuse, courage, and freedom, Breaking Free is an expose of religious extremism and a beacon of hope for anyone trying to overcome personal obstacles....

Breaking Free: How I Escaped My Father-Warren Jeffs-Polygamy, and the FLDS Cult Reviews

  • Amy

    While I don’t necessarily recommend the audio, the book itself is great.

  • Matthew Trevithick

    Disturbing, disgusting, eye opening and necessary. Proud of the author for sharing her story and absolutely love her opening line: ‘I am not a victim and I do not want anyone’s sympathy.’

  • Leah Bergsma

    A sad story but very gripping. I found the beginning difficult as she describes the abuse that she suffers. A good read.

  • Tammy

    Rachel Jeffs is one of the fifty-three children of FLDS (Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints) “prophet” Warren Jeffs and Breaking Free is her account of living within the polygamous cult of a sadistic and abusive madman. Thankfully, this lunatic is serving a prison sentence of life plus twenty years for felony charges and molestation of minors. Rachel catalogues the abuse that she suffered at her father’s hands and at this point I needed to put down the book and take a ...more

  • Jennifer Porter

    Awesome book. Polygamy and FLDS have always been an interest of mine. It's a shame that these people have to go through everything they do and they think its normal. Rachel is very brave for telling her story and I'm so glad she did. Thank you, Rachel, for the awesome book.

  • Kristine Olsen

    Another outstanding look inside this group, this time from one of Warren Jeffs children. This is a blisteringly fast read as Rachael take you on her journey growing up in the FLDS to her ultimate decision to leave the people she called and still calls family. Warren deeply deserves to be exactly where he is today since his abuse wasn’t just limited to the underage girls he “married.” This is not the first FLDS story I’ve read. Each one I read simultaneously fascinates and horrifies me given the ...more

  • Bonnie

    I think Rachel is very brave to come out and tell her story. I'm intrigued by all the polygamous cults and if you are -this is a great book for you. Rachel does a great job really giving us a picture of what it was like to grow up in such circumstances.

  • Bethany Owens

    One of the most informative books I've read on FLDS. So fascinating and so, so heartbreaking at the same time. Rachel Jeffs is such a strong, brave person!
