Rose believed God would punish her for leaving her family in the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. That punishment might have included, she feared, a car wreck.
“So when I stole the van,” Rose said, “I was driving 5 miles an hour, or something, down the road so I didn’t crash.”
