Sister Wife by Shelley Hrdlitschka

In the isolated rural community of Unity, the people of The Movement live a simple life guided by a set of religious principles and laws that are unique to them. Polygamy is the norm, strict obedience is expected and it is customary for young girls to be assigned to much older husbands. Celeste was born and raised in Unity, yet she struggles to fit in. At fifteen she is repulsed at the thought of being assigned to an older man and becoming a sister wife, and she knows for certain she is not cut out to raise children. She wants something more for herself, yet feels powerless to change her destiny because rebelling would bring shame upon her family. How will Celeste find her way out of Unity? Torn from the headlines and inspired by current events, Sister Wife is a compelling portrait of a community where the laws of the outside world are ignored and where individuality is punished.

I read this in a single evening. I liked it, but I am a fan of young adult literature in its own right and this is very much a YA book. If you are a grownup looking for a serious novel, this is not it; if your favorite soap opera is Degrassi you’ll probably enjoy this book. Polygamy filtered through teen angst
buy it on amazon.com (I got it used for under $2)

Saralegs in the Polygamist Wife costume
My only complaint is I wish her hair was bigger. Nice stems though

Alex Winston - “Sister Wife”

So, one thing led to another
You’re calling her our lover
My brother’s her brother
And if you want me to do it, I
guess that I’ll do it, but
I’m telling you
One wrong move and yeah we’re through

Chorus x 2
Hey there sister wife
Get the hell out it’s my night
You don’t know the way to his heart
Like I do

Yeah, man, kick out the logic
With you as the prophet
I don’t think you got this
And holy as our father
I’d rather not bother, I
and I’m telling you
One wrong move and we’re through

Chorus x 2
Hey there sister wife
Get the hell out it’s my night
You don’t know the way to his heart
Like I do

I’m stuck with two
I’m stuck with you
I’m stuck with two
I’m stuck with

Chorus x 2
Hey there sister wife
Get the hell out it’s my life
You don’t know the way to his heart
Like I do

I didn’t like this song when I first heard it but I admit it gets stuck in my head now

Also if you’re a big fan of Hausu (1977) you’ll like the video

has anyone ever read any of these historical mormon romance books, or any other FLDS-related fiction? i haven’t, i’m still working my way through the autobiographies of former FLDS members
not super impressed by the covergirl’s standard french braid but it’s set in the 1800s so they probably weren’t into big awesome hair yet
