The Witness Wore Red

Author: Rebecca Musser M. Bridget Cook

Rebecca grew up in the FLDS. She lived in fear concealing her family's polygamous lifestyle from the outside world. When she was a young teenager she became the 19th wife of her people's profit, 85 year old Rulon Jeffs. She watched as forty eight other wives were added. After she was widowed, the new profit Warren Jeffs threatened her with remarriage so she escaped to start a new life. By 2007, Rebecca was sick of hearing about all the abuse against young girls and women, so she agreed to be a witness, sending leaders to prison for years and Warren Jeffs to prison for life.
