    School psychologist Skye Denison reluctantly agrees to act as maid of honor in her California cousin's over-the-top platinum-style wedding - and is also expected to assist the control-freak wedding planner. But when Skye discovers the planner dead, just one week before the big event, Skye is suddenly working double-duty.

    He runs his own business and coaches Little League. She drives a minivan, and she'd be lost without her trusty BlackBerry. They go on date nights. Their kids attend public schools, play sports, and take music lessons. They live in a roomy house in the 'burbs. They're about as mainstream as families come. They're also polygamists. The Dargers move the conversation away from child brides, Warren Jeffs, and the FLDS to more mainstream polygamists who willingly enter into plural relationships as adults.

    What did you like best about this story?

    It was interesting to hear all three wives as well as the husband tell of their experiences. I have watched Sister Wives and they the Dargers tell their story after seeing the bravery of Cody & his wives going public.

  • Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

    Heralded as an instant classic of fantasy literature, Maguire has written a wonderfully imaginative retelling of The Wizard of Oz told from the Wicked Witch's point of view. More than just a fairy tale for adults, Wicked is a meditation on the nature of good and evil.

    I had read the book years ago and just now listened to the audio version -- I missed so much the first time! It's worth a re-listen!

    Story
    (178)

    September 8, 1900, began innocently in the seaside town of Galveston, Texas. Even Isaac Cline, resident meteorologist for the U.S. Weather Bureau, failed to grasp the true meaning of the strange deep-sea swells and peculiar winds that greeted the city that morning. Mere hours later, Galveston found itself submerged in a monster hurricane that completely destroyed the town and killed over 6,000 people in what remains the greatest natural disaster in American history.

    If you could sum up Isaac's Storm in three words, what would they be?

    It was Like I was There


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    It gives such a visual to how Galveston before the great hurricane. And gives a good understanding of hurricanes and how much we have learned since then.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Isaac and his family being swept through the streets in the darkness from the rising waters was a very compelling part of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I have since visiting Galveston and visited many of the places described in this book. How I would have loved to see Galveston as it was prior to the Great Hurricane.
