His Favorite Wife?Trapped in Polygamy details my experiences as a young girl raised in a fundamentalist, polygamist sect, an offshoot of the Mormon Church. My story begins in 1968 in Colonia LeBaron, a small settlement in Chihuahua, Mexico. At fourteen I am considered of marriageable age and sought after by several of the brethren as a plural wife. I narrowly escape marriage to Ervil LeBaron, the charismatic patriarch of the church, whose ?revelations from God? pressure several of the women to become his wives, and ultimately, ?soldiers in his army.'This story will appeal to a wide audience. Filled with rich, well-developed characters, it will grab the heart and imagination of the reader. His Favorite Wife will show how intelligent, educated people, in pursuit of the ?highest degree of glory,? can be swept into a controversial lifestyle. With many tears and even with wide brush-strokes of humor, my book will lead the reader on a journey into a lifestyle that people wonder about and shudder about. It answers the question that I've heard countless times: ?How could you stand to share a husband? I couldn't do it!?
