The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

Recommended by Colleen in Outreach Services…

Her synopsis:
Two stories woven together — one is set in modern day Utah and deals with the murder of a polygamist man.  The second addresses the story of one of Brigham Young’s wives, who sued him for divorce.

She says:
This book was interesting and thought-provoking.  Many of the events of 1880 were reflected in this modern day “cult” of polygamists.  The author also weaves in a pretty good mystery into the novel.
