Mormonism: the religion “du jour”

After a group of us listened to “The Book of Mormon” musical sound track, someone expressed an interest in finding a readable book on the Mormon religion. My well-read sister had just the ticket: “The 19th Wife,” by David Ebershoff, a fictional account of a present-day 19th wife accused of killing her polygamous husband on a Utah compound entwined with the fact-based story of Brigham Young divorcing his 19th wife back in the 1800’s. This is historical fiction at its most gripping and painlessly educational for those interested in knowing more about the early history of the Church of Latter Day Saints.

Speak Your Mind
