I am a big fan of the TLC show Sister Wives. I'm fascinated by polygamy, and the people who practice it. I could never be a polygamist, but I am curious about those who are. This book, written by the stars of the show, gives a more in depth look at the history of the family and the struggles they faced in order to create a successful polygamous family. I was surprised by some of the interpersonal issues described in the book because I did not pick up on them in the TV show. I had no idea that Meri and Janelle had such trouble getting along! I understand the jealousy issues these women faced, but I guess I never really thought about the dynamics of starting a polygamous family. Overall, this was an insightful read, especially for fans of the show.
