For her freedom and escaped her powerful husband to lead a crusade to end polygamy in the United StatesBold shocking and gripping The 19th Wife expertly weaves together these two narratives a pageturning literary mystery and an enthralling epic of love and faith I was asked to answer uestions at a Library Book Club about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints that sparked because of this book On doing research to know how to respond to some of the uestions many have on why our faith practiced polygamy over 100 years ago I came across an article that I felt answered a lot of uestions that I agree withhttpwwwfairldsorgMiscPolygamyThe book club was very excited to ask difficult uestions in a setting that was not offensive I found the experience to be valuable and faith promoting I also thought it was nice of them to ask going right to the source to ask about our history and beliefsOn that topic I suggest also to visit or are the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints' official websitesOverall I feel that this book is not worth anyone's while to read It is full of opinions and part truths However the subject is interesting You could read ABOUT polygamy and never run out of things to read I personally enjoyed reading biographies about Brigham Young called Brigham Young Modern Moses Prophet of God and Lion of the Lord The website also had many other documents that were interesting to read These are not official church books or websites however they do look at it in a positive way which is a needed twist after this book I'll end with this uote The sole danger which historical information about polygamy poses to members of the Church or sincere investigators occurs only if they stop their research too soon Church critics are uite happy to lead their marks part of the way only to abandon them when the story is just getting good by Gregory L Smith MD

Didn't I review 'any' books when I first joined Goodreads? guess notThis book blew me away I loved it and gave it as a gift a couple of times A VERY strong 5 star novel A phenomenal polygamous fundamentalist murder mystery page turning storywhich alternates with a fictionalized memoir of Ann Eliza the 19th wife of Brigham Young I come here today because I just discovered 'yesterday' that a movie comes out this year called The Danish Girl which David Ebershoff wrote alsoSo I mustRUN not walk and find time to read The Danish Girl soon before seeing the moviewhich looks 'fantastic' by the wayI can't wait to read The Danish Girl
