God, Sex, Farming
Ms. Riley has clearly done extensive research about cults. Through her story, guided by research, we learn about the life within a polygamous cult.
I developed a sympathy and understanding of the characters, which translated to a better understanding of a polygamous cult from a members' perspective. I developed a broader understanding of "family".
Is the book an endorsement of polygamous cults? Not by any means. She does allow the reader to make their own decision and perhaps broaden their understanding of other social structures.
Amity. We don't know her well, but she is intriguing.
Amaranth. I understand why she did what she did, but it would be interesting to give her alternative views.
A dark but enlightening book. A very worthwhile listen. Can't wait for her next work!
