Sara dreams that she and her sister, Rachel, might escape their abusive father and his four wives, who constantly vie for power in their overcrowded household. Sara wishes to choose her own path in life. To go to school, to get a job, to marry of her own free will. She wants the same for her beloved sister.
But that is not Sara’s destiny, nor Rachel’s. Trapped in a secret, polygamous cult, the fifteen-year-olds are overdue to be married to husbands selected by their Prophet. Sara—too smart and willful for her own good—is terrified when she learns she will be sealed to her already-married uncle.
For Rachel—a stunning and loyal beauty—the Prophet has a different plan. Sixteen men, including some of the most powerful elders of their Church—seek Rachel’s hand. But a forbidden love is blossoming for Rachel, one that will change her forever and threaten the entire community.
