    The first 100 pages are extremely uncomfortable Susan takes you back to the mindset of an innocent 14 year old girl and it reads like my junior high diary full of Does he like me Do I like him The main difference is, though, that the boys that are flirting and winking at Susan are actually grown men, old enough to be her father, and are doing it in the company of their current wives It is amazing to read about these women who are continually neglected and left to fend for themselves in, fi The first 100 pages are extremely uncomfortable Susan takes you back to the mindset of an innocent 14 year old girl and it reads like my junior high diary full of Does he like me Do I like him The main difference is, though, that the boys that are flirting and winking at Susan are actually grown men, old enough to be her father, and are doing it in the company of their current wives It is amazing to read about these women who are continually neglected and left to fend for themselves in, ...

    This is the true story of a woman s experience of being the favorite wife of her fundamentalist mormon polygamist husband It was pretty eye opening for me to see what it s like to live in a fundamentalist community with religious leaders who claim to be receiving personal revelation from God on a daily basis, especially when the bulk of their revelation has to do with which 14 year old God has commanded them to marry.This darling girl was a true believer who would do whatever was asked of her This is the true story of a woman s experience of being the favorite wife of her fundamentalist mormon polygamist husband It was pretty eye opening for me to see what it s like to live in a fundamentalist community with religious leaders who claim to be receiving personal revelation from God on a daily basis, especially when the bulk of their revelation has to do with which 14 year old God has commanded them to marry.This darling girl was a true believer who would do whatever was asked of her by her Prophet and her religious leaders She is very candid and exposes her true feelings of falling in love with the older, charismatic religious leader She is smitten by all the attention and affection that she craves as a teenager.Once she is marr...
