Author(s): 

The glaring difference between Amanda and Wyman’s bishops shows how the word of God can be manipulated, and Wyman’s support of Amanda — who insists on respect in a culture that frowns on assertive women — is a shining example of a husband fulfilling his marriage vows. The busy social life they share with family and friends is a sweet counterpoint to the serious nature of their personal and spiritual dilemma.

Amanda and Wyman’s marriage, which unites eight children and Amanda’s mother-in-law under one roof, is off to a very stressful start. Wyman’s district has a much more strict atmosphere than creative Amanda and her three girls are used to, and Wyman must decide how far to allow his bishop to go in chastising them for their freedom. When God steps in and creates a perfect storm, Wyman realizes the solution has been in Amanda’s hands since the day they wed. (NAL, Nov., 336 pp., $14.00)
