Helen Historical fiction alternating with modern day murder mystery, though it isn't so much about the mystery as it is about the power and culture of a cult and cultic leaders. As a personal history of a certain aspect of Brigham Young's life I found it interesting. And as a look into the culture of a modern day cult I found it believable and thought provoking (having come out of a cult myself). But I didn't care much for the story.
