The 19th Wife

From Sandi Rosenthal

Title:  The 19th Wife 

Author:  David Ebershoff

I really enjoyed this book.

The author told two tales a hundred years apart, both stories relate to each other.  One story is based on the life of Anne Eliza Webb, the 19th wife of Brigham Young, one of the first leaders of the Mormon church, and a second fictional story of a modern day cult of polygamists.

This book is about polygamy, is so interesting and so well written, I couldn’t put it down.
