LEAVING THE SAINTS How I Lost the Mormons and Found my Faith

by | Read by Bernadette Dunne

Biography & Memoir • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

It would have been easy for Bernadette Dunne to narrate such a personal story badly. In her second memoir Martha Beck narrates her tortuous path out of Mormonism, a path that led to intense battles with her intellectually powerful father and to bizarre memories of sexual abuse at his hands, which Beck recalled as an adult. Dunne's narration not only captures the horror and the barrage of other emotions through dramatic changes in pace and tone, she manages to evoke the surprising touches of humor Beck inserts to lighten her narrative. Dunne also makes clear the time shifts in Beck's personal story. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
