Forsaking All Others Book Review
Forsaking All Others by Allison Pittman is the first in The Sister Wives Series. I really enjoy Pittman's writing and this was one of her books that I hadn't read yet. This book has a different historical twist about the Mormons in the mid 1800s. The story is about Camilla Fox who realizes that being a part of the Mormon religion was not honoring to God and after her husband marries another wife she runs away, leaving the church and her life.
There are many issues in the story that are not usually brought up in novels and the issues with the Mormon faith were really interesting to read about in a historical context. This book takes us back to the 1800s and it proves there was as much conflict with the issues as there is now.
I like this book, though it's not as captivating as some I've read. I like the history in the story and the way the book is written. I hope to read more books in this new series!
