“Hush, Hush, Sweet Sister-Wives”

Unspoken scandals run beneath this secret polygamist community in Utah like coal and iron run through Pennsylvania.

Hidden Wives tells the riveting story of Rachel and Sara, two 15-year old sisters, empowered by their will to live, love…and survive.

I received this book from Claire Avery, the pseudonym of a sister author tag team. I spent a lot of time holding my breath while reading this over the past week!

However, I do give advance warning of some graphic passages.

Kim Thanks, that's Chippee, our calico princess. LOL

I've got your book on my "to-buy" list and I'll post a review when I've read it.


Mary Boudreau Hidden Wives was excellent but also very graphic in describing the abuse the 2 young women had to endure.

Kim I'm just past the part of Rachel's attack. The authors did a lot of research for this book and it sickens me, while I'm reading it, to think these things have or might have happened, esp. to Sara. ugh. Within the first few pages there was a feeling of doom.
