Wife Number Seven Publisher's Summary

Lipstick. Bright, red lipstick. Nothing but lipstick.

Even though it's against our faith to wear a color that screams of sexual promiscuity and deviant behavior, I'm not allowed to protest.

But, I want to.

So badly.

You see, there's more to me than the braid that spills down my back.

More to me than the layers of heavy fabric that maintain my modesty.

And so much more than the oppressive wedding band that adorns my finger - the same band that each of my sister wives wear.

So much more.

To protest would be sinful.

I must keep sweet, that is my duty.

So I'll wear the lipstick. I'll do as I'm told.

And I'll do my best to silence the resistance within me, to push him from my mind.

If only my heart would do the same.

    Secrets. So many secrets. Nothing but secrets. I started another life with a new husband, 13 new sister wives, and a new place to call home. But the secrets weigh on me, on all of us. And every secret leads back to the Prophet, the self-proclaimed mouthpiece of God. The man I've worshiped since childhood, the man we obey without question. And he's the man who will destroy us all. I must reveal his secrets. Prove his betrayal, his lies and his deceit. I will not be silenced, no matter how hard he tries. And I will never give up.
