This was a really well-done book. The whole subject of polygamy makes me upset and sick to my stomach, and because of that I almost gave up on this book in the beginning. I am very glad I finished it. I thought it was very realistic and honest about the difficulties of polygamous marriages, and about frontier life. It was a tad boring at times, but all in all a very good read, and I would highly recommend it.
It was disturbing how the man was against polygamy until the bishop tries to convince him to live it and then he suddenly discovers a hot 18 year old in the neighborhood. I felt sad for the first wife who got replaced.
