For Time and Eternity by Allison Pittman is a book I stopped reading due to wariness. I was wary of reading a book that centered on Mormons as the victims. While the main character had a desire to know more of God, I did not approve of her methods (including lies).
This is one of those books that takes you by surprise. It seems that all of the sudden in both medias of film and novel there are many different Sister Wife stories coming out. Whether it is a new television show, an on screen film, or a book it in the general market or Christian market it makes me nervous because it is a topic I still do not quite understand. There are so many people with different views.

It is interested to read a story from an author that grew up around such a different belief system. I agree with my friend Christy that it is a good idea to read some non-fiction polygamy memoirs to really understand the POV, but reading a fictitious perspective is an interesting entry into such a topic.
The whole thing makes me want to spend more time reading and studying in the Old Testament to understand just a bit more about how Jacobâ€™s wives might have felt.
