I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

"Forsaking All Others" Sister Wives Book 2 - By Allison Pittman

Forsaking All Others is the second book in the Sister Wives series by author Allison Pittman.  The book continues the story of Camilla Fox and her escape from the Mormon faith in the late 1800s.  She is found and aided in her journey to reconcile with her parents and eventually regain custody of the children she left behind with her polygamist husband Nathan, by army Captain Charles Brandon.  Her journey is fraught with peril as she is perceived as a threat by the elders of the Mormon church, but her faith and trust in Jesus sees her through.

Once again Allison Pittman has written a masterfully moving and intriguing book.  We are brought along a journey of faith and peril that leaves you turning the pages wanting more.  Camilla's escape from the Mormon church and polygamist husband is heartbreaking as she is forced to leave her children behind. Pittmann's research into the historical aspects of Mormonism and their effects is powerful and insightful.  About the only thing I found disappointing was that it was the end.  I hope she goes on to write another book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purposes of reviewing it by Tyndale Publishing House.
