I confess. I had no interest in reading this one (bigamy doesn’t really float my boat) until I saw the author speak at the Tucson Festival of Books. But I loved listening to her speak so much that I just had to read her book. This is the danger of book festivals…they make you want to read things you were convinced you weren’t interested in!
And yowza, did this end up being a book I was interested in. I gobbled it up in a day. Jones does a fabulous job with her characters. They are both sympathetic and flawed. They are real. I loved them. I hated them. I wanted their stories to never end!
I think most everyone has weighed in on this one, so I won’t recap, other to say…two daughters, two “wives,” two sides of the story. And one talented author.
