It's 1875, and Ann Eliza Young has recently separated from her powerful husband, Brigham Young, prophet and leader of the Mormon Church. Expelled and an outcast, Ann Eliza embarks on a crusade to end polygamy in the U.S. A rich account of her family's polygamous history is revealed, including how bith she and her mother became plural wives. Yet soon after Ann Eliza's story begins, a second narrative unfolds - a tale of murder involving a polygamist family in present-day Utah. Jordan Scott is an endearing young man who was expelled at the age of 14 from a fundamentalist Mormon cult in Arizona. After a tough period of destitution and prostitution, Jordan has made a life for himself in California. But that hard-earned stability is disrupted when he hears that his mother has been arrested for murdering his exceedingly creepy, polygamous father. He drives back home to see her for the first time in six years and reluctantly decides to help prove her innocence. He's funny, a little flippant, finally at ease with his homosexuality. And as Ann Eliza's narrative intertwines with that of Jordan's search, readers are pulled deeper into the mystery.
