MOTHER BEFORE WIFE
by Melissa Brown
Release Date: February 4, 2016
So many secrets. Nothing but secrets.
I started another life with a new husband, thirteen 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. Ever.
Returning to the compound in Mother Before Wife is an eye-opening Returning to the compound in Mother Before Wife is an eye-opening experience. In Wife Number Seven, true love and romance prevailed. In Mother Before Wife we see that everything is not as it should be, and it’s up to Aspen to unearth the truth—for her children and for herself.
This is Aspen’s story. We find her happily saying good riddance to Lehi and joining a new family. Sounds simple right? Not even close. Aspen is a strong woman who displays immense strength and courage throughout her story. She’s lives a simple and focused life of servitude. A life where keeping sweet and worshipping the Prophet is expected. When secrets come to light, Aspen finds herself realigning her priorities and walking a fine line of danger.
Ms. Brown has crafted another well-written adventure with outstanding character development. So outstanding that I wanted to break things. I had to put this book down so many times I lost count. Always going back to it because I just had to know. I guess I have a bit of Aspen in me and couldn’t let him get the best of me. This is an engaging and interesting story.
