Torn by God A Family's Struggle with PolygamyRmon Church never should Torn by PDF have rescinded polygamy He knows that the practice is against the law and grounds for excommunication but he feels it is something God demands of him Twelve year old Beth watches helplessly as her by God A Family's Struggle PDF or father becomes increasingly involved with the polygamists and her mother sinks into depression and illness Even Beth is not safe from Brother Reuben Another book of halves for me Two halves totally oppositeThe first half of this book is too little Nothing happens no story progression no real character development We watch the father slowly start to become involved with these polygamists butnothing comes of it They waffle around everyone argues they make up Then they have the exact same argument about thirty times I really really struggled to continue reading the book up to that pointThe second half is too much It's like the author suddenly realized they hadn't actually told a story at all and they needed to cram it all into the last little bit Also I'm not entirely sure how old Beth is supposed to be my guess is eleven or twelve based on what grade she's in But there is so much navel gazing using words and ideas that I'm pretty sure no actual eleven year old would have that it's insane Especially not an eleven year old that thinks you can get pregnant from sitting on a toilet seat that a boy has peed on Beth goes back and forth between being so incredibly childlike that she's almost younger than she's meant to beand then talking and acting like a mid twenties woman I just didn't buy anything about the story I didn't care about any of the characters because none of them seemed real They were all the extremes of what a normal person like them would be I suppose also to be fair I'm an atheist and so literally all of this would have sounded like nonsense to me anyway BUT The ridiculous characters and unreliable personalities didn't helpSo I guess I would say better than 2 stars but not uite 3 But bumping it up the half a star for the kid that hits the polygamist in the face with a stick Half a star for you kiddo
