Book Review-Forsaking All Others by Allison Pittman

Forsaking All Others is the second book in The Sister Wife Series by Allison Pittman.  I did not realize it was part of a series until I had it in my hands, and was worried it would be hard to jump into not having read the first book.  It turned out to be very easy to read separately.  The story:  Camilla Fox is a married mother with two children living in Utah in the 1800s with her husband Nathan. When Nathan obeys their religious leaders and takes another wife, Camilla flees their home, leaving him and their daughters.  She desperately wants her husband to leave his new wife, but if he won't she dreams of starting a new life with her daughters at her parents home. A snowstorm nearly kills her, and she ends up in the care of the United States Army until the Spring. 

Although this wasn't the type of book I usually read, I did enjoy it.  The story was easy to get into, and the characters had depth.  I would be interested in reading the first book in the series now. Personally I enjoyed the story line as I live in the Salt Lake City area of Utah, so it was fun hearing the referrences to where I live. Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes from Tyndale House.
