    Well written but .....

    The Sister Wife is a well written, interesting story, however, I found parts of it to be weak and questionable. After Mary Rose gave in to Gabriel's persistance to bed Bronwyn, her (Bronwyn) going to Mary, in her robe no less, to make sure Mary Rose had agreed and proceeding to excitedly run upstairs to Gabriel's room to have sex with him, practically under Mary's nose, was cruel. Gabriel and Bronwyn not being able to contain their lust until Mary Rose was in her room, hopefully asleep, showed how little they cared about her or her feelings. Breaking their vow on remaining platonic would have been more believable if it just happened sometime when they were alone. Bronwyn, a supposedly grieving widow with a child, dancing like a school girl in front of the mirror on her and Gabriel's wedding day and later her joy at thinking Gabriel had fallen in love with her, made her look silly and uncaring. Polygamy was practiced during the late 1800's, however, I find it questionable that women (esp. those, like Bronwyn, raised outside of this religion) were excited about becoming a plural wife. I believe the majority relunctantly agreed because they were widowed with children and felt they had no choice, or their fathers forced them to marry against their will. Equally hard to understand was Enid and her reasons for pursuing Gabriel now. At the beginning of the story I found Gabriel to be intelligent, strong and likable, however, he turned out to be confused, easily swayed and obviously was not as in love with Mary Rose as he claimed. Bronwyn was also equally disappointing, often silly and simple minded. I did like Mary Rose, the only strong character in the series, and hope she not only finds her way of this mess, but finds a man that truly loves and cares for her, so that Gabriel realizes what he's given up to please the 'prophets'. But, I'll probably never know because I doubt I will continue with this series.
