Kind of a slow book and I felt the ending was rushed.

This was just bad. It took me forever to read..

This book is desperately sad, and part of me wishes I hadn't read it. The voice of the narrator, almost thirteen year old Hope, is painfully clear and realistic as she tries to comprehend what has caused her to lose her sister. At times I thought the story must be taking place at least 30 or 40 years ago because the girls seemed so isolated and naive, but it's a modern story of girls isolated by poverty and abuse.

"Think of it," I said to Laura when I turned twelve. "I'm almost Mother Sarah's age when she was married."

Carol Lynch Williams- "The Chosen One"

Old Review edited.

4.5 stars for an amazing and very dark book.

As you may realize if you read the description this book is about Polygamy. Our main character is a child who is lively, vivacious and loves to read. She has her whole life before her..until "The Prophet" chooses to marry her off to her cruel elderly uncle. She does not want to marry him but he is the Prophet. And this is the way things have always been.

This book was utterly heartbreaking. I have not read too many books on the subject of polygamy and you learn a lot through this book. Some of it may seem almost incomprehensible to the reader and I will warn that some of the subject matter, actually almost all of it, it’s quite dark. Start reading this when you’re not down or gloomy .

What makes it particularly stark and horrifying is because, although this particular story is fiction, these things have and do happen. It was a bleak read but it was written so beautifully.

I found this to be a powerful story about one girl’s fight to break free of her family and the only life she has ever known.
