Please join us on Thursday July 8th, when our guest on Book Club Girl on Air will be Diane Noble. In her new novel, The Sister Wife, Noble begins her Brides of Gabriel series set during the formation of the Mormon edict of polygamy. Award-winning author Diane Noble explores the inner conflicts, emotions, and decisions of three woman married to the same man.
What if the man you loved told you God wanted him to take another wife?
What if that woman was your best friend?
Set in the heart of the earliest days of a new nineteenth-century sect known as the Saints, The Sister Wife is a riveting account of two women forced into a practice they don't understand, bound by their devotion to Prophet Joseph Smith. When Mary Rose marries Gabriel, neither of them could foresee how quickly the community would turn to the practice of plural marriage. Devastated when Gabe is faced with an order from the Prophet to marry her best friend, Bronwyn, Mary Rose tries to have the faith to carry through with the marriage. But can she really be married to the same man as her very best friend? Can Mary Rose and Bronwyn face betraying both their husband and their God to do what they feel is right?
I am so looking forward to this show, to talking with Noble about her story and about the research she did to write the book. I have 10 copies of The Sister Wife to give away to the first 10 people who comment that they want to participate in the show on July 8th at 7 pm ET.
