About the Author
Carol Lynn Pearson is the author of more than 40 books and plays that together have sold over 800,000 copies—autobiography, inspiration, humor and novellas. She claims to have been “born into women’s issues” and “married into gay issues,” both of which she has fearlessly addressed on the difficult terrain of religion. She considers her newest book, The Ghost of Eternal Polygamy, to be one of the most important works of her literary career and a vital move forward in the worldwide tide toward transforming patriarchy into partnership. Ms. Pearson was born in Salt Lake City, received an M.A. in theatre from Brigham Young University, and lives in Walnut Creek, California. Visit her at: carollynnpearson.com facebook.com/clpauthor

Carol Lynn does such a beautiful and heartfelt job in conveying the pain it has caused to countless women and men and then spells out in such inspired and beautiful detail her solution to overcoming this problem for the church and escaping once and for all the old ghost that still haunts the hearts of so many. She draws attention to it bravely and with amazing clarity spells out ways to eliminate it once and for all. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever wrestled with or been troubled by this topic. It is well worth your time to read!
I think the only thing that I really disagree with Pearson on is the last chapter in which she tries to make a case for Joseph Smith disapproving of modern Mormon polygamy. I don't think there is any way that the modern LDS church can renounce polygamy because it is intertwined with so many other facets and doctrines of the church. While Pearson's dream for the church is admirable, it's more than likely never going to happen. Regardless, read this book!
