Summary:

Thirteen year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated polygamous community without questioning her father's multiple wives and her 20 brothers and sisters, with two more on the way. Or at least without questioning them much--if you don't count her secret visits to the Ironton County Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her occasional meetings with Joshua, the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of marrying a man who is chosen for her. But when the Prophet decrees that Kyra must marry her 60-year-old uncle, and her parents are powerless against him, Kyra must confront the increasingly violent lengths to which the Prophet and his followers are prepared to go to enforce his will over the entire community.

    I was completely ensnared by this novel. The story of young Kyra had me in tears while being spellbound at her amazing strength and willpower. This is an amazing read and I have not stopped 'promoting' it to everyone I know!

    The story was enthralling and the narrator was perfect. I truly looked forward to my commute to listen - the read flew by too fast. Highly recommended for a great listen.
