Due to background noise the show has been edited from it's original form! SUSANNA BARLOW is the 23rd child of 46 children, the quintessential middle child. Growing up in a Mormon fundamentalist religious home shaped her life values, and her views on everything literally. Ms. Barlow is the author of “What Peace There May Be”; a memoir about growing up while suffering abuse in a polygamous family living in Utah. She says, “In writing the book, I let the rotting parts of myself die and I asked the book to carry the emotional truth that my body could no longer hold.” Young Susanna didn’t know anything other than the family environment that was created for her; a system without regard for society or man’s laws. Raised in a sequestered home in a busy city neighborhood, everything beyond the front gate was off-limits. The isolation proved to be a breeding ground for abuse and Susanna struggled to reconcile her desire to escape and her need to belong. The book recounts six critical years of Susanna’s youth during which she struggled to come to terms with the conditions of her life. NOTE: Due to background noise there is distortion at the beginning of the show but it will clear up after a few moments! sorry for the inconvenience Again to my listeners and Susanna, I am apologizing on behalf of the co-host at Healing Through Hurt Talk Radio! The problem will not happen again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZwu8rIXNPU
