Reading - The 19th Wife by David Ebersol. I LOVE this book. It was suggested to me by someone who has wonderful taste in books not that long ago who predicted that I would really like it. She was right. I haven't been able to put it down. It's two stories threading along at once - the story of Brigham Young's 19th wife who left him to become a staunch critic of polygamy and the story of a young man who was thrown out of a polygamous sect and whose mother is ultimately accused of killing his father and the young man's struggle to determine what really happened. I know almost nothing about the Latter Day Saints or their history and from the little bit of research this book has led me to do, it's pretty fascinating. It's also got me thinking a bit about my own tolerance - I find some of the aspects of it pretty bizarre and, well, ridiculous but then, I guess to an outsider, Christianity might seem that way, too. It's a good read and at half-way through, I can't put it down.
I can't wait to do some visiting and see what else everyone is knitting and reading this week!
