Since the day Carolyn escaped the polygamist community, she says her relationship with Betty has been strained. Now, their conversations are few and far between.

"It's been very difficult," Carolyn says. "I have had contact with her since she's left, but there's been a few occasions where I lost that contact. So every time I talk to her, I try to keep the conversation very neutral because I don't know if it will be the last time I talk to her for a very long time."

Despite the mother-daughter conflict, Betty remains close to her siblings, whom Carolyn says she misses terribly.
