“A fascinating tale of polygamy and its effect on those who practice it. This novel really tells two tales -- that of Jordan Scott -- a young man who was thrown out of his fundamentalist sect and who is now trying to clear his mother of murder -- and that of Ann Eliza Young, the wife of Brigham Young, who went on to denounce polygamy. This is an amazingly researched, well-written novel!”
— Mary Cowen, Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL

“The 19th Wife brilliantly combines two stories: one, historical fiction about Ann Eliza Young, who defies her church and husband, Brigham Young, the other a modern-day murder mystery set in Utah. Ebershoff adroitly gives the reader an understanding of a world of faith and love most of us can not comprehend, and he writes stunningly, with great depth and feeling for his characters.”
— Jane Dawson, Porter Square Books, Cambridge, MA
