Brenda Stanley: The Treasure of Cedar Creek

As part of the Utah Humanities Book Festival, Weller Book Worrks welcomes Brenda Stanley for a reading and signing of her book, The Treasure of Cedar Creek! In 1896, the isolated and vast state of Idaho is a haven for the polygamous splinter group called The Kingdom of Glory, which is hiding more than their outlawed practice of plural marriage. At the compound called Cedar Creek, the prophet is hoping to increase his congregation, even if that means marrying off girls to men decades older. When Peri, who escaped the compound years earlier, returns to help rescue Grace, a girl betrothed to the prophet himself, she ends up also saving her own sister Emma. As the three women make a frantic and deadly escape from the compound, they take with them both the newborn heir to the church, and their dead mother's cryptic journal to the prophet's hidden treasure. Along their journey, the women realize to truly be free they must face what holds them captive, even if those answers are more horrifying than they ever imagined. Brenda Stanley has been a television news anchor and reporter for over twenty-five years. She has been recognized for her writing and reporting by the Scripps Howard Foundation, the Hearst Journalism Awards, The Idaho Press Club and the Society for Professional Journalists. She is the mother of five grown children, including two sets of twins, and seven grandchildren. She lives on a small ranch in Blackfoot, Idaho with her husband, Dave who is a veterinarian.
