Teen who returned to FLDS disputes mother’s book about the sect

Betty Jessop Betty Jane Jessop’s favorite phrase: “Good grief!”

That’s what Betty utters as she reads the new epilogue in her mother’s best-selling book, Escape. In those pages, Carolyn Jessop describes her daughter’s return to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, calling her brainwashed.

Betty said she decided to write a book about her own experiences after watching news reports about Texas authorities’ raid on the Yearning For Zion Ranch and her mother’s “ridiculous” comments about the community.
