|13 Questions for Susan Ray Schmidt, “His Favorite Wife”|
May. 28th, 2007 at 5:52 pm
We are delighted to introduce you to Susan Ray, author of “His Favorite Wife.”
Susan was raised in Mexico, when her parents left Mormonism and moved to be in the heart of the LeBaron clan. They believed that Ervil LeBaron was their prophet.
Susan married Ervil’s brother, Verlan, when she was just fifteen and had, I think, six kids in the ten tumultuous years that followed. Broken down in heart and body–disillusioned with this man she loved deeply, although he was more than twenty years her senior, she finally left polygamy.
Her book, His Favorite Wife is amazingly honest and thought provoking. Seldom do we come across this type of insider’s picture of life in polygamy. Her book is receiving rave reviews from all quarters.
Susan has since remarried and lives a quiet life in Idaho. Please post your questions for her and we’ll pass them on and post her answers.
Thanks, Times and Seasons, for letting us steal all your best ideas :)
