Read Sample Chapter

Overview

Sophia Randall had no intention on returning to her home in the polygamist community she grew up when she left Hiram Jefferson just hours before their wedding. Though she cared deeply for Hiram and his family, she was young and impulsive.

Ten years, two children, and one monogamous marriage later, returning to Green Valley after the death of her husband is the only option left.

Hiram was devastated when Sophia left him at the altar. With everything already on his plate-- between his job as the district superintendent, his large family, and one sick wife, the last thing he needs is the headache of Sophia being back in town.

When his wives go behind his back and form an alliance with Sophia, what is left for him to do but show them the error of their ways with a little old fashioned discipline. But what will happen when he finds out the true reason Sophia left him in the first place?

This book is the second book in the series, I have not read the first book and it did not cause me any difficulty in understanding this story.&newline&&newline&The prologue begins with Sophia running away from her fiancé and her religious polygamous community the day she should’ve been walking down the aisle. The story then picks up with Sophia and her two children returning 10 years later to live with her brother Ben after she can no longer survive financially following the death of her husband. The first person she runs into is her ex fiancé who she left standing at the alter with no explanation, we begin to see both of their feelings and thoughts as Sophia adapts to being back within the community and being 10yrs older now, begins to understand the misunderstanding that drove her away in the first place .&newline&&newline&This was the first book I’ve read where the husband has more than one wife and I really enjoyed the story. Although the book contains religion, it is only so far as to understand that the community itself is religious. This book also contains no sex, it’s more about the dynamics of the family. I really enjoyed reading about families, although it would’ve been nice to know a bit more about the community itself. &newline&&newline&I would definitely recommend this book&newline&&newline&I received this as an ARC for an honest review.&newline&

This is the 2nd in the series. Sophia fled the polygamy community of Green River a decade earlier on the eve of her marriage to Hiram. Discovering that the man intended to actually spank her in their marriage had her fearing she would be bound to an abusive husband. She weds another and has two children. When her husband dies, she has no choice but to return to family and moves in with her brother Ben and his two wives, only to discover her brother spanks his wives as well. Sophia learns that there is a huge difference between abuse and domestic discipline done out of love and caring. Hiram is determined to avoid his runaway bride only to find that both of his own wives have fallen in love with her and the three women have schemed behind his back so that Sophia can work in his household in order to help out his family as well as save money to start her new life. Sparks from the past fly and Hiram discovers that perhaps the Bishop was right – God had a plan for Hiram and Sophia and it would be best to follow it. Very sweet story containing domestic discipline. I really enjoyed the first in the series and found this was a very nice sequel. I hope Ms Jamison continues to educate her readers about life in a polygamous community and the people involved.

I fell in love with this series at book one... but this one is ten times better. I LOVE Hiram. Sophia is every woman in her fear and sassy way. And then you add the other two wives, oh the mischief they can create. Old fears are put to bed, when Sophia sees that Hiram is a loving and firm disciplinarian, just like many other husbands in the community. Why, even her brother and his two wives live that way, and even when Sophia wants to protect them, sensible Molly explains the draw to be accountable to her husband. If only Sophia had known all those years ago.
