Kelsey Waite (nee Sorenson) has been through a lot in her life. Years after running away from an abusive, fundamentalist father who sold her in marriage when she was only 16, Kelsey comes home one day to find that her daughter has been kidnapped and her neighbor murdered. To find her child, Kelsey must return to the place of her nightmares and confront a madman who believes he is God's prophet. SisterWife (a term that refers to the way multiple wives in polygamous marriages refer to one another) catches your attention right away by starting off inside Kelsey's daughter Tia's mind. Collins switches easily between multiple points of view throughout the story, giving each character their own unique voice and a different perspective on the action. Although the writing style sometimes threatens to slip into genre romance, Collins has done a beautiful job of portraying the relationship between Kelsey and Quinn. Never forced, the romance is sexy, yet believable and the characters' reactions honest. In addition, Collins has created one of the most frightening madmen in fiction today, David Stone. The calculating, ruthless nature of his actions paint a portrait of a true sociopath that makes you shiver with the knowledge that he could be out there somewhere. All in all, SisterWife is a book I would gladly recommend to my friends along with a mug of hot cocoa and several uninterrupted hours!

Natalie R. Collins' SISTERWIFE is a compelling read. The book is about a woman who, in order to save her daughter, is forced to go back and face the terrors of her past. SisterWife takes the read deep into religious cults and abuse, but the difficult subjects are handled skillfully by Ms. Collins. There is a love story that really lightens the tone and reminds us all that there is always hope. If you want to read a book that will take you beyond the news coverage to what drives the people involved either directly or on the fridge of these cults, get SISTERWIFE!

Sisterwife tells the shocking story of how one fundamentalist Mormon cult terrorizes it own. Fast paced, lots of action, and great details woven through the plot. Collins has written a true expose that chills to the bone, and stays with the reader long after the book is read.
