Unusual Find

Escaping Polygamy on A&E (Tuesdays at 1o/9c) offers an interesting study into the polygamist lifestyle as it follows three sisters who left Salt Lake City’s The Order, some 10 years ago, and now help others break free from the often dangerous and abusive lifestyle. In the Feb. 14th episode, the sisters work with the temptation of wanting to return even after a successful escape.
