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 literally everything.  This memoir is 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.” Susanna has been a keynote speaker for an abuse recovery group in Portland Oregon and most recently spoke at The Successful Mothering Convention.  Ms. Barlow has been contacted by local polygamy groups one of them” Holding Out Help” and was asked to be in their DVD which is going out to churches and schools.   In addition Susanna Barlow has been interviewed on Good Things Utah, across the nation on radio as well as Canada.  Her book is getting into libraries in  different states and also seen in Publishers Weekly.  We are aware her book is in other countries, South Africa, Pakistan,  Turkey and Australia…those are ones we  know of. National Geographic’s cover story for February “Polygamy in America” and also aired a documentary “Inside Polygamy: Life in Bountiful.”   Susanna has family members in both areas featured in the article Colorado City and  the documentary filmed in Bountiful Canada.  I actually recognized some from the documentary as I have met them.  The film company sent us a DVD of the documentary that aired in February on National Geographic  Channel.   Ms. Barlow is available for interviews.
