5.0 out of 5 stars A FABULOUS READ!! July 20, 2012
Format:Paperback
Lillian grew up in a American Fundamentalist Mormon sect where polygamy is still practiced. When she turned 13 she is said to be a woman and is sent to be the child bride of a Bishop in Canada. The compound is located in the wilderness of British Columbia. There are no neighbors for miles. Lillian is scared of her new "husband" and his first wife. Her sister-wife and the wife recognized by law.

A land developer has decided to purchase the land next to the compound for a ritzy new subdivision. He knows absolutely nothing about the compound next to his idyllic property. When he needs to tell the Bishop about his proposed project he learns the sect's secret. Can he just stay out of their business or does he need to investigate further and protect the children he has seen at the compound? He has some difficult choices to make that could effect so many in Canada but the United States as well.

WOW! What a suspenseful story!! A fabulous read!!

Zeiner has taken her research and constructed a well written novel that will have you sitting straight up in your chair rapidly turning the pages.

One of my former employers is a Mormon, not of a sect the practices polygamy. The staff were members of several religions and unlike most places of work back then we discussed religion openly. Different views were shared and we all learned much of different theology. There were Catholics, Methodists, Seven Day Adventists, and Lutherans. When the company was purchased by a man of Mormon faith from Salt Lake City we were all anxious to learn about the religion. Some of us even were fortunate enough to travel to Salt Lake City and see the temple and learn about Joseph Smith and his teachings. I was familiar with several beliefs shared in this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be a 10 star for this book. September 14, 2012
Format:Paperback
Horrors,
Image you are 13 years of age and have just become a woman. You live in the States and are sold by your family to a bishop in central British Columbia to be his wife and bear children, all in the name of the Lord.
A land developer, Richard, purchases a huge parcel of land for developing into a resort in the interior of British Columbia. Needing more land than he thought for roads, he has to deal with this selfish bishop. He got more than he bargained for.
The bishop has many wives. The first wife rules, of course, she no recourse, but to obey her husband. She gives heavy chores to the other wives under his direction. She has no choice. Even sending them to the local dump to salvage scrapes of fabric for quilts to make and sell.
Turmoil, hardship and pain envelope this small community of women.
Having lived in British Columbia I was able to follow Richard from Vancouver to Hope, to Merritt, to Kamloops to the interior of B.C., and it just brought the book to life for me.
This book is a must read and I highly recommend it.
A veryy powerful, unforgettable story you will not forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves a five star rating!! October 7, 2011
Format:Paperback
This novel deserves five stars! The author has combined impressive research with a compelling storyline and managed to write a fast paced novel about a controversial topic that is impossible to put down. I am looking forward to Ms Zeiners next offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Section 132 October 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
It's scandalous that abuse on this scale is allowed to continue in this day and age, and while it is predominantly violence and subjugation of women, it is also about control and victimisation of children. This book shines a light on stark reality ... I only hope the authorities put women and children ahead of the political agenda and give them their lives back ... and save many more from a desolate future. Read this book and see if you can remain unmoved on the sidelines.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Characters August 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book really hard to review! Only only gave it 3 stars, but there are parts of this book (like the first half) that are so tremendous, that I would recommend people read the book even if the end is a bit of a let down.

The characters in this novel are fantastic. I didn't like all of them, some I downright despised, but the descriptives were fantastic. Each character was completely believable and each action they performed felt true to their own identities. I LOVED reading about the women in the polygamist family. While I have read many books on escapees from polygamy, it was nice to read of characters that had some good things to say about the practise, without them preaching the path - even in the midst of their horrific existence.

However, I found the end of this book a little too unbelievable, while the characters remained true in the first half of the book, towards the end, everything was tied up just a little too neatly. I really don't think that these women would have reacted the way they did being in the environment they were born into. (I'm finding it hard to say much on this without causing a SPOILER ALERT).

Even with me not liking the end of the book, I would still recommend this book to read though, if only for the start and middle since the characters are truly what make this book.

I was amazed and actually revolted that some children have to live this type of upbringing (I wouldn't call it "life"). To me, this is totally child abuse.
