really liked it
Read from October 27 to November 26, 2011

I've been going through a very painful divorce, along with a custody battle so I may be bias about this book. I found it so informative concerning the early days of marriage laws and how religion plays a part in our society. Loved this book.. and needed it too. I am not alone.. even though our struggles are slightly different and separated by many years. It was somewhat hard to read this book at times, but my determination in needing to know how she battled through the hard times, got me through.
