This is a book about polygamy in Brigham s time and today It uses the divided time frame techniue trying to link two stories and liberally mixes history with fiction to the point that it s very hard to discern what is history and there s not much history by the time he s doneThere are two 19th wives One is the real historical figure Ann Eliza Webb Young married to Brigham She was his 19th wife on some lists depending on the criteria When she became disaffected and left the marriage and the Church she wrote a best selling expose called Wife No 19 or the story of a life in bondage She became a public crusader against polygamy s abuses That part is true however excerpts which are supposedly from her book and extensive conversations and descriptions and explanations of motivations are all from the author s vivid imaginationThe other 19th wife is a fictional woman named BeckyLyn Scott living in a modern fictional southern Utah town with the rest of the fundamentalist Firsts Early in the book her polygamous husband one of the communitychurch leaders is murdered because of circumstantial evidence BeckyLyn is accused of the crime and imprisonedMeanwhile we meet Jordan Scott son of BeckyLyn and the polygamist patriarch He was cast out from the church as a 14 year old and became one of the lost boys Six years later he is living a gay lifestyle in California Reading about his mother s situation he is drawn back to Utah to try to unravel the mystery He meets a new boyfriend once he gets to Utah and is unfaithful to his supposed partner Was it really necessary to introduce homosexuality into this novel Wasn t the analysis of the complexities of plural marriage enough for one bookThe author gives some insight into the practice and challenge of polygamy in both eras but I felt he presented a mostly limited one sided interpretation Fortunately he does attempt to distinguish between modern fundamentalist churches and the main LDS bodyWhatever value the book might have provided for me was dramatically lowered by freuent obscene language and too much sexual description There are much better sources for learning about the challenges of polygamy in a safer way Buried Mountain Secrets gay lifestyle in California Reading about his mother s situation he is drawn back to Utah to try to unravel the mystery He meets a new boyfriend once he Buried Mountain Secrets gets to Utah and is unfaithful to his supposed partner Was it really necessary to introduce homosexuality into this novel Wasn t the analysis of the complexities of plural marriage enough for one bookThe author The Deranged Cousins or Whatever gives some insight into the practice and challenge of polygamy in both eras but I felt he presented a mostly limited one sided interpretation Fortunately he does attempt to distinguish between modern fundamentalist churches and the main LDS bodyWhatever value the book might have provided for me was dramatically lowered by freuent obscene language and too much sexual description There are much better sources for learning about the challenges of polygamy in a safer way

READ & DOWNLOAD The 19th Wife David Ebershoff ✓ 1 FREE READ FREE READ Æ The 19th Wife Faith I tell them is a mystery elusive to many and never easy to explainSweeping and lyrical spellbinding and unforgettable David Ebershoff’s The 19th Wife combines epic historical fiction with a modern murder mystery to create a brilliant novel of literary suspense It is 1875 and Ann Eliza Young has recently separated from her powerful husband Brigham Young pr. Recently I have been seeing a lot of reviews and advertisements for The 19th Wife popping up everywhere Whatever the reason after this book popped up on my recommendations for the umpteenth time I was intrigued I downloaded the Audible version and started listeningThis book was absolutely fascinating Aside from the stories being told the format was uniue This book blends fact and fiction telling the present day fictional story of Jordan a young man whose mother has recently been charged with the murder of her polygamist husband alongside the journals and non fiction accounts of early Mormon polygamists Most notable is the story of Ann Eliza Young Brigham Young s nineteenth wife Of course how accurate these accounts of early Mormon polygamy in the United States are is a source of great controversyAs I was listening to this book my heart went out to the women in these stories It is hard to imagine having to put up with some of the stuff that these ladies did The control over their lives was absolute As a mother of two young girls I cannot imagine the horror of having daughters not much older than mine being forced to marry dirty old men More than anything this book sheds light on terrible abuses committed in the name of religion I am always amazed when I read these types of stories and see the lengths that some people will go to just because some nut job said it was so It seems laughable but there is no doubt that it was very real to these believers As this story unfolds I gained a better understanding of exactly how absolute the control of the Prophet was The manipulations and crimes were multiple Even if somebody wanted to escape their nightmarish existence they had very little knowledge if any of how to do so or any means to get out These communities are by design the perfect breeding grounds for victimizationWhile the fictional plight of Jordan and his mother was entertaining and suspenseful I found myself strongly drawn to the historical aspects Ann Eliza s story was captivating She was such a strong and rebellious woman born into an unthinkable situation I could not uit listening to her account of life growing up in a polygamist communityAside from Ann Eliza s personal story the history of polygamy in the United States and it s ties the Mormon Church were very enlightening This book did a fabulous job of connecting the dots for me as I admittedly haven t read much on the topic Although the present day Mormon Church has renounced the practice of polygamy it remains a shameful part of the church s past In the meantime that shame and unwillingness to speak openly about this practice has fostered an environment where this practice is allowed to continue It seems that the church and the government are content to look the other way and pretend that this practice is not still thriving in the shadows As a result the Mormon Church and law enforcement have inadvertently created an environment that actually perpetuates the cycle of abuse in these cult communitiesFrom start to finish this was a captivating read I was completely absorbed in this story I highly recommend this book I only wish that I had known about it years agoCheck out of my reviews at wwwbookaddicthavencom High Risk Affair Silhouette Intimate Moments great controversyAs I was listening to this book my heart went out to the women in these stories It is
