“This haunting novel stayed with me long after I finished it. While a work of fiction, it portrays a life situation which is all too real in the back country of North America. It awakened in me a realization of the horrors of polygamous cults which enslave women. The novel, written from the point of view of one such young woman, is so realistic that I could forget that it is a work of fiction. I would highly recommend it.” – Amazon Review
The story of a child bride forced into polygamy
Lillian grows up in an American fundamentalist Mormon sect. At thirteen she becomes the child bride of a Canadian Bishop. His compound is located deep in the wilderness of British Columbia, totally isolated from the rest of the world.
When the land developer Richard Bergman buys the property next to the Bishop’s land, he learns that Lillian tries to escape from the compound. But he knows that Section 132 is the covenant of plural marriage dictated by Mormon Church founder Joseph Smith.
Should Richard Bergman get involved or should he respect the concept of religious freedom so foreign to him? Find out how he decides to solve this moral dilemma.
If you enjoy reading about a life-style so foreign that it’s hard to imagine it still exists in our civilized world, this novel will keep you on edge until you turned the last page.
