I know, I've been MIA for this month-- and only two reviews! I'm really going to work harder on it next month, I promise.
I've just had so many things going on here, my summer college classes (and now finals), family issues, etc....
But when the Prophet decrees that Kyra must marry her 60-year-old uncle—who already has six wives—Kyra must make a desperate choice in the face of violence and her own fears of losing her family.
, I was a bit weary-- it's not the kind of book I usually read.
I didn't know a whole lo about polygamy, except for the stereotypical information we get through the news. Though I still find polygamy wrong (and not just because of the multiple wives), I found out more about it through this book, and hopefully that knowledge will help me to be more open minded in the future-- after all, many of the followers are born into this cult/religion, but that doesn't mean they agree to everything their 'God' has said they should do.
Could I get into this book even though everything about their life style goes against my beliefs and my morals? Kyra's family, for example, seems much closer, more loving, than the others, and they don't take everything they've been raised to believe to heart.

Nope.) This is my way of showing you exactly what books I have, and hopefully give you a little insight on what kind of books I enjoy.They don't want Kyra to marry her 60 year old uncle (and become his 7th wife), and they wish they could change they would do anything to change the Prophet's decision.Also, looking at Kyra and Joshua's forbidden love, you can't help but reach out and connect with the characters, even if they do have different beliefs.They love each other and want to get married, grow old, all the same things we want from life-- but their family, their whole community, is against them. We've heard the same basic idea before, but never in this type of setting.
