9/11/14 - Book review Sacred Road by Todd Preston

Sacred Road is a man’s journey in and out of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Mormon’s.  It is his heart-breaking story of abuse at the hand of his father.
This story is a window into the life of Todd Preston and what he has lived through from childhood until now.  He was abused by his father and the church.  I knew very little about the Mormon faith going into this book and learned a lot of what they believe and also their lifestyles.  Todd has lived in New Zealand, Australia and the US.  He was baptized into the church and even went on his 2-year mission.  All throughout his life he dealt with struggles, in and out of the church.  He was betrayed by his family even pitting him against his wife.  I did find it troubling that his marriage ended so he could go on with his life.

This is a very emotional read but a very informative one.  I would recommend this book to any and all that are struggling with their Mormon faith. 

I received this book from LibraryThing.
