From the publisher: In 1880s Utah, even as Federal anti-polygamy laws were bringing Mormon Zion to its knees, a complex and tragic scandal threatened the Family Kingdom from within. Involving some of the most prominent names in pioneer history, the Louie-Wells-John Q. Cannon affair is recounted here as part biography, part novel, and brings to life that long ago era when sanctioned plural marriage was both a coveted blessing and a disastrous complication for a generation of young men and women striving to fulfill their parents' dreams."
