On Saturday, September 26, 2009, from 2:00-3:30 pm, The King’s English Bookshop will present Zoe Murdock in a reading and discussion of her new novel, Torn by God: A Family’s Struggle with Polygamy. This riveting family drama chronicles the devastation brought upon the Sterling family when the father has a vision that leads him to become involved with polygamy. It is based on real events that happened when Zoe was a child, but it is more than one family’s tragic story; it explores the controversial association between mainstream Mormons and fundamentalist off-shoot groups such as the one led by Warren Jeffs. At once chilling and informative, Torn by God exposes the destructive power of religious indoctrination and control.
