This has been the best historical fiction novel about polygamy that I have read. It answered many questions. With two timelines (the 19th wife of Brigham Young, Ann Eliza Young, who fought against polygamy, and the fictional 19th wife of the "Firsts" convicted of murder) the story can get confusing. But continuing reading - it will all come together. A very good read.

Much insight into a hidden sect. A good complement to the HBO series Big Love!
