Books on Polygamy
Well I finished The 19th Wife. I highly recommend this historical fiction. I found the teaching on celestial marriage interesting but still wondered how so many women could have been fooled, are still being fooled, into thinking this was the means to get to heaven. The language was a little too crass for my taste but the storyline was fascinating. Now I am reading Escape, the memoir of Carolyn Jessop who escaped from a polygamous marriage. She was a fourth wife.
