In the name of religion?

The faithful Latter-day Saints do not read unapproved material and Leaving The Saints is not on the approved list, according to its author, Martha Beck. Ms. Beck has an axe to grind, but writes with an authoritative stone.

Quoting from the back cover:

As "Mormon royalty" within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Martha Beck was raised in a home frequented by the Church's high elders in an existence framed by the strictest code of conduct . . . Most troubling of all, she was forced to face her history of sexual abuse by one of the Church's most prominent authorities."
Leaving The Saints is a troubling story. Truth like an onion with layers upon layers, can bring tears. Ms. Beck has cried a river in her struggle to find the truth.
