- Length: 10 hrs and 17 mins
Megan Phelps-Roper was raised in the Westboro Baptist Church - the fire-and-brimstone religious sect at once aggressively homophobic and anti-Semitic, rejoiceful for AIDS and natural disasters, and notorious for its picketing the funerals of American soldiers. From her first public protest, aged five, to her instrumental role in spreading the church's invective via social media, her formative years brought their difficulties. But being reviled was not one of them.

A beautiful full of love and redemption
What a beautiful well written book. I often like to listen to books about personal experiences read by the author because it gives me a feel of the person and makes it far more personal. I have been following WBC for many years through documentaries and the books written by x members.
I think It is fascinating to look at the believes of others, particularly when I don't share them. Although the message they preached was hateful i never thought they were essentially evil, just misguided and wrong. This is truly a book about bravery and love and the power of change. I wish Megan , Grace and all of their family love, peace and happiness - I hope there is a happy resolution for them
