Otherwise her only plan is to take her children out of the Mormon's false teachings. And find a new home with them.

Romance:Kissing, loving someone, Camilla is married and the had had two children. There is some mention of her husband rubbing her belly and such, the way she slept next to him and he tries to convince her to come back with him, the sleep together that night and though nothing is really described it is best for younger readers not to read that part.later she finds out that she got pregnant form that night.

Other:Taking on another wife, divorce, though in this case I think it's a good thing.The Mormon beliefs mentioned.

Time Period:1958-1959 (?).

What I Thought:It was so sad how they actually believed stuff like they would become a God in heaven and taking on other wives. That was  areal downer but I love Camilla strength...she wasn't perfect and that made her feel real. And the ending is great...everything kinda works out. It felt like a very well researched book and it was well written.

Rating & Age: 4 stars. 15 up.


I got this book free from the publisher.


  1. I don't think I would be able to read this book just because of her husband. I woud be bso angry at him in every scene with him because he had other wives... :P

  2. Trinka:Yeah...luckily he wasn't in it tooo much :)
    It is so sad the way they live... Thanks for the comment! Sierra♥
