This is not a good book, it must be pointed out that it is NOT representative of the mainstream Mormon church, or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, to give it its full title. The Mormon church does not in any way condone or support the practice of polygamy, and in fact anyone who practices it is excommunicated from the church. There are many sects who call themselves "Mormons" who do practice polygamy but these are not affiliated in any way with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and do not hold to its practices and beliefs. It is true the "real" Mormons did at one time practice polygamy but this was stopped over 100 years ago and they come down heavily on anyone who is a member and who engages in this heinious lifestyle. While Jessop's book is engaging and pulls the heart strings it gives the wrong impression about one of the fastest growing Christian religions of today.
