Invitation to Comment on "The 19th Wife" through Chapter XI

In June, "One Book...One Literacy Council" is reading The 19th Wife, by David Ebershoff. There is one Large Print copy available to be borrowed at the DCLC offices.

We hope everyone is enjoying the book. If you have finished Chapter XI, "Wife #19: The Con of the West" (p. 324 in regular book; p. 353 in large print edition), then it's time to let us know what you think of the book.

Reminder: Live meeting to discuss The 19th Wife will be held Monday, July 1st, 12:05 p.m., at DCLC.

Please don't read these comments if you haven't yet finished Chapter X1; they may contain spoilers!

  1. Since this book is a mystery I have sped right through it. I enjoyed the jumping back and forth between historic and modern times. I am looking forward to group discussion because as usual I am confused about various matters, like why does Jordan trust the (modern) prophet and Queenie's husband? He seems to think both these men will help him. Book does a good job at exposing celestial and multiple marriage for what it is at its core, but I am not a religious person.
