A memoir of one woman's spiritual quest and journey toward faith. As "Mormon royalty," Beck was raised in a home frequented by the Church's high elders, and her existence was framed by their strict code of conduct. However, soon after Martha began teaching at Brigham Young University, she began to see firsthand the Church's ruthlessness as it silenced dissidents and masked truths that contradicted its published beliefs. Most troubling of all, she was forced to face her history of sexual abuse by one of the Church's most prominent authorities. This book chronicles her difficult decision to sever her relationship with the faith that had cradled her for so long, and to confront and forgive the person who betrayed her so deeply.--Publisher.
