really liked it

The book was excellent....actually both books were excellent. It is two stories; the story of Brigham Young's 19th wife who sued him for divorce and helped bring about the abolishment of polygamy and the story of a 21st century 19th wife who is part of a splinter group that still practices polygamy. Both stories are engaging and the use of many voices enhances the stories. However, there is never a meshing that gives the reader a feeling that these two stories relate to one another. Still, a good read.
