The Sisterhood: Inside the Lives of Mormon Women
Solomon focuses on the roles of Mormon women in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries, including fascinating personal stories about family, children, and husbands. She takes us into the lives of the High Priestesses of the Church, draws on histories sustained by the most thorough genealogical records in the world, and addresses the wives of polygamists. The Sisterhood sheds light on an expanding and complex religion and offers a long overdue portrait of Mormonism and women.
What Readers Are Saying
"This book provided an easy to understand overview of the lives of Mormon women. The author was raised in a polygamist family so this was discussed in the book although the author made it very clear that this practice is outlawed in today's Mormon church." —Jodi
"I loved the reality of this book. I enjoyed the peeks into the author's history, the stories she shares from her experiences and the countless numbers of other women. I was inspired by stories of modern women as well as women in the early church and I was educated by the history shared. I've had misconceptions and questions about aspects of this religion (my religion) and this book inspired me to search more completely for the answers. I loved it and would highly recommend it. It was food for thought and inspiration to study!" — S.T.
"I wasn't sure what kind of book this would be, but found it quite enjoyable. It isn't an anti-mormon book but the author does examine some theologies that are controviersial. I really enjoyed her experiences and comparisons to growing up in a polygamist home." —Jennifer
