Imagine entering adolescence only to find you're engaged to a man five times your age. You are not allowed to choose your husband, he has been chosen for you. And you will share this man with many other wives. You will be forced to give up your education, freedom and dreams. And when you do meet the love of your life, you will have to give him up too.
HIDDEN WIVES follows the journey of two sisters growing up in a polygamist community where religion is distorted to justify rampant abuse, misogyny and the taking of child brides.
"Though fiction, HIDDEN WIVES reads like a first-hand,
eyewitness account of a polygamist lifestyle...a
suspenseful page-turner you can't afford to miss."
Irene Spencer, New York Times bestselling author of Shattered Dreams
