Book #2

Secret Ceremonies: A Mormon Woman's Intimate Diary of Marriage and Beyond by Deborah Laake

OMG, what a crazy book. All the Mormon stuff aside. This lady has a whole bundle of mental pathologies. Anyway, the whole premise of the book is basically Deborah Laake describing life as a Mormon woman and the expectations placed upon her. Barefoot, pregnant and submissive. She didn't fit the mold plus had horrible clinical depression to boot. So, three marriages and a couple mental hospitals later the book wraps up.

It was ok. I am morbidly fascinated with LDS, so I chewed right through it. If you are interested in LDS, this talks about the underwear at the very least.

So, onward and upward. I currently have 2 more books in progress.
