Tough Subject Matter Makes for an Interesting Story

  • Oct 2, 2010
Rating:
+2



Sister Wife tackles an interesting and challenging history. Polygamy isn't a comfortable subject, but, as it was a practice in the early Mormon years, and the endless possibilities for stories makes it rich ground for novels, the topic makes for a page turner. After a slow start that contained a few too many cute scenes with lots of relationship building and a lisping child, the story took off and became compelling. Heavy topics, both spiritual and relational, are covered with sensitivity. Interestingly, Noble has tossed in multiple viewpoints and the reader gets to see the inner drama unfold between members of the growing MacKay family. Parental warning. I wouldn't recommend it for children due to the subject matter and drama over sleeping arrangements.
