I haven't read any of the books you mentioned, but I did read a book this past year written by a shunned member of the LDS community. I can understand your fascination with this subject. I saw a clip on one of the morning shows with the family who will be featured in the new reality show you mentioned. As disturbing as it is, I have to admit that they seemed like a loving group of people and the husband to the four women seems like a very committed father. It's just unfathomable to me that any woman could live in a situation like that and not feel resentment and jealousy towards the other wives.

I have read The 19th Wife - my problem with this book was the format. I think we have a trend of this back and forth - two stories right now. Is it just me or does it seem inevitable that you will like one story more. Then you are disappointed each time the other story line interrupts your favorite. On its own I really liked the historical version, and I bet if it had not been ripping me out of my favorite story, I would have been ok with the current story line.

I too really enjoyed the historical story more- that was why I found the lifetime movie so disappointing too- they focused on the modern story and then totally changed some key elements....
