Recommends it for: Mormons & Others interested
Compilation of experiences written by various polygamous women. Some of these women can write, others definitely cannot! All of the women validate and support polygamy. I found it disturbing that they claim to have made a choice, but it was obvious their prior "brainwashing" led them to that "choice!"
Weird! And freaky! And weird! I feel like I should put warning notices on all of the mormon polygamy books I have ever read. But this one takes the cake. It is an absolute time warp back into the early days of the church. Modern polygamy, with nearly identical "testimonies" from the women.
