Book Giveaway- Cult Insanity by Irene Spencer




I will be giving away 5 copies of Cult Insanity by Irene Spencer, thanks to Hachette Book Group. I'm currently reading Cult Insanity right now, so keep on the lookout for a review soon.
**********************************
From the Publishers


Life for Irene Spencer was a series of devastating disappointments and hardships. Irene's first book, Shattered Dreams, is the staggering chronicle of her struggle to provide for her children in abject poverty and feelings of abandonment each time her husband left to be with one of his other wives. Irene was raised to believe polygamy was the way of life necessary for her ticket to heaven.

The hard knocks of her environment were just the beginning of Irene's shocking tale. Insanity ran rampant in her husband's family and was the source of inconceivable events that unfolded throughout Irene's adult life. CULT INSANITY takes readers deeper into her story to uncover the outrageous behavior of her brother-in-law Ervil -- a self-proclaimed prophet who determined he was called to set the house of God in order -- and how he terrorized their colony. Claiming to be God's avenger and to have a license to kill in the name of God, Ervil ordered the murders of friends and family members, eliminating all those who challenged his authority.

For those who were gripped by Shattered Dreams, the rest of the story will blow them away. CULT INSANITY is a riveting, terrifying memoir of polygamist life under the tyranny of a madman.

  41. The book sounds like an engaging read... One that sounds troubling, but one which we must not hide from and understand the harsh and violent truth of what is likely occurring right now on these colonies all over North America. Please accept this as my entry... Thank you!
