Group Enjoys Discussion of "The 19th Wife"

We had a good turnout July 1 for our discussion of The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff.

Mary, Michelle, Susan, Ellen, Lois, Edith, and Susanna shared their reactions to the book, which most considered engaging and thought-provoking.

Topics of discussion included whether the present-day mystery was adequately explained, the interesting arguments for and against polygamy in Mormon history, and the light the book shed on religion and marriage in general.

Maureen, who could not attend the live discussion, highly recommends reading the book on a Kindle or other e-reader. She found she could jump easily to the historical references either to discover which parts of the novel are historically accurate or to read more about historical topics that interested her.

Thanks to all who participated!
