Author: Michele Dominguez Greene
Release Date: March 9, 2010

This book caught my eye primarily because I live in Utah at the moment, and the LDS culture and the idea of polygamy is prevalent in association with this state. I doubt this book would even be offensive for LDS people because it's only the fundamentalists who condone polygamy...I believe, but I'm not certain because I'm not LDS. Either way, I think this book sounds fascinating and heartfelt. Oh, and I love the cover and how the title nearly censors the girl. I think it's brilliant.
