Image of The Sister Wife: Brides of Gabriel Book One

The first book in the Brides of Gabriel series introduces us to the foundation of polygamy in Mormonism. A well-researched, gripping story written with depth of emotion, it tactfully illustrates different belief systems and explores plural marriage without sensationalizing it.

Lady Mary Rose Ashley, a new convert to Mormonism, meets Gabriel MacKay aboard a ship traveling from England to America. They marry, then move to the settlement of Nauvoo, where prophet Joseph Smith receives a revelation about plural marriage. When Mary Rose’s best friend, Bronwyn, is widowed, Gabriel is told to marry her. While Bronwyn professes to remain platonic, Mary Rose fears her husband is falling in love.
