I saw this family on Dr. Phil. I found this family honest and riveting. I appreciate them opening up their lives. I fear for them and I hope everything works out for them. After much research I believe that polygamy should be allowed and brought out of the dark. This book was an amazingly open look into normal modern day polygamy. I had so many questiond and this book answered them. While I do not think I could share my husband I respect their religious rights to. After all this country was founded partially on the right of freedom of religion. I highly recommend this book.

Interesting read. My biggest problem with this book is the kid-glove treatment of the FLDS. Warren Jeffs should never be mentioned in a kind light or even a tolerant light. He has molested children of both sexes and has encouraged severe human rights violations. There are multiple books by his victims and others which document his sociopathic behavior. And when he is gone there has always been another crazy fool to step up. I acknowledge that this family describes a lifestyle which is the polar opposite of what the FLDS lives, but the authors presented the FLDS as simply a sect that dresses more conservatively. I read this to hear the other side of the story after reading books by Carolyn Jessop, Susan Ray Schmidt, Sam Brower and Jon Krakauer.

After seeing this husband and wives on a talk show, I remember how shocked I was, not that they were polygamous, but at my ignorance regarding this group of people. I remember thinking how "normal" they seemed! I wanted to learn more, and the book did much to dispel my preconceived notions (prejudices, stereotypes), and for that I thank them. I was also outraged (although not shocked) at some things, such as the fact that while the plural marriages are not recognized legally, polygamous husbands can still be imprisoned for bigamy. I still remember from my high school government class. 'You can't legislate morality.' I respect this family for not only living their beliefs but working to educate us ignorant monogymists. I would add that another reviewer indicated he/she didn't think the book did enough to denounce Warren Jeffs and his sect. I emphatically disagree. Nearly every time the name is mentioned, it is also made clear what Jeffs did is wrong, is in no way condoned, and he should be made to pay for his crimes.

This book is an amazing inside view of a family that is unique and considered illegal. Each person explains what it takes to make not just a plural family, but every family/relationship work. I think if they continue with their series on TLC people will open up and hopefully stop the predjudice of Polygamy. There will always be bad, even in tradional marriages but it seems these three women chose this life because of their happy expericences growing up this way. I love this book and wish this family all the happiness they deserve.

Although I was eager to read and learn about the polygamist lifestyle, I became very frustrated with the way the book was written. I do not want to read about the exact same incident from four different points of view. This happened often and became annoyingly repetitious. I found myself skimming a lot.

I live and work in a part of Colorado where there is a sizeable mainstream LDS population. I learned a lot about their beliefs through knowing these individuals, but took an additional interest in the fundamentalist LDS sects after hearing the mainstream members' opinions of them. After becoming an avid viewer of Sister Wives on TLC, I found myself experencing a great deal of compassion for these peope. The subjects of this bok, the Dargers, are just as fascinating and relatable as the Browns. This book is a great window into a polygamist family's world and everything from how they run their households to raise amazingy responsible and self-aware children, to how they make it work financially to how they deal with the prejudice to how theymake sleeping arrangements s truly fascinating. They seem to take an especially difficult aproach to life that is already full of challenges, but tey do it with grace and nothing but the best intentions. I highly recommend this book to people of all religions or those who are simply curious. Modern parents whse kids rule the house and constantly misbehave and disrespect them could learn a thing or two here as well.

Thanks Darger family for being strong enough to tell your story! The book starts out slow and is somewhat repetitive, due to same events being told from each perspective. The Darger family details their relationship and decisions to live in plural marriage. Each family member came from polygamist backgrounds and actively pursued that lifestyle. This books clearly details the struggles and benefits of practicing this principle. I found myself thinking throughout the book, I wonder what they are holding back? I wanted to hear more from Joe, because I really felt he held back the most. It was clear that the Darger's wrote a book that would not offend each other in the process, definitely keeping in mind that their children would read it in the future . Keep in mind this is far from a tell-all, with dirty deets that we really wanted/needed to know in order to understand the family dynamic. Instead it is a love story, about a successful family of a different kind that wants to live their life in the open. I think the story and family is great! I found that I was inspired by their sense of selflessness and constant struggles to practice this very difficult lifestyle.

I am fascinated with the polygamist lifestyle. That does not mean I want to live it however. I am only intersted in families like the Darger's, where the wives are all adults & consent to the marriage. There are a lot of sterotypes about polygamy because of Warren Jeffs. This family is nothing like that religious sect. Polygamy is illegal. I feel the only kind that should be is Warrent Jeffs sect. The Darger's are a family. They all live in one house and raise the children together. The children are surrounded by love & support. I find it ironic that a man can have a lot of "baby mamas" and not help to raise those children but it's legal. There are men like Joe that loves all 3 of his wives and 24 children. He is there day in and day out but that is illegal. Insane! I am fasinated with this lifestyle because personally I would never be able to share my husband like that. I really enjoyed this book and reading how they make it work.

Enjoyed reading fist person's explanation of lifestyle but by the time everyone in the family that wants to write basicly the same thing it gets old. They do have interesting beliefs and seem sincere.
