You think your marriage stinks. At 18, this former fundamentalist Mormon from Colorado City says she was forced to marry a stalwart polygamist nearly 40 years her elder -- and to bear eight children by the geezer -- before escaping from the grasp of the creepy Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints (FLDS). She tells her story of redemption and retribution in the new book Escape, which she discusses and signs at Changing Hands.
