[David] Ebershoff intertwines a modern-day murder mystery with a sweeping historical saga.-People (4 out of 4 stars) It is 1875, and Ann Eliza Young has recently separated from her powerful husband, Brigham Young, prophet and leader of the Mormon Church.

Expelled and an outcast, Ann Eliza embarks on a crusade to end polygamy in the United States. A rich account of her familys polygamous history is revealed, including how both she and her mother became plural wives. Yet soon after Ann Elizas story begins, a second exquisite narrative unfolds-a tale of murder involving a polygamist family in present-day Utah. Jordan Scott, a young man who was thrown out of his fundamentalist sect years earlier, must reenter the world that cast him aside in order to discover the truth behind his fathers death.

As Ann Elizas narrative intertwines with that of Jordans search, readers are pulled deeper into the mysteries of love, family, and faith.Engrossing . . . remarkable . . . a book packed with historical illumination, unforgettable characters and the deepest questions about the tenacity of belief .

. . The greatest triumph is the way [The 19th Wife] illuminates the larger landscapes of faith.-The Washington Post Book WorldWonderfully lyrical . . . The 19th Wife is a big book, in every sense of the word. It sweeps across time and delves deeply into a world long hidden from sight . . . and in the process it does that thing all good novels do: It entertains us.-Los Angeles Times Rarely has a work of fiction seemed more timely.

. . . A page-turning epic . . . [a] tour de force.-Vogue Wonderful . . . as chilling as it is entertaining.-New York Daily NewsPart history class, part expose, part love story, The 19th Wife is thoroughly addictive. . . . Ebershoff not only imparts a valuable lesson on religion, but spins a compelling tale that makes readers question the power of faith and what we believe and why.-USA Today Ambitious .

. . fascinating . . . Ebershoff demonstrates abundant virtuosity, as he convincingly inhabits the voices of both a nineteenth-century Mormon wife and a contemporary gay youth excommunicated from the church, while also managing to say something about the mysterious power of faith.-The New Yorker
