Product Description

Camilla Fox has been taken in by the 5th Infantry Regiment of the US Army and given over to the personal care of Captain Charles Brandon. The last thing she remembers is being lost in the snow after leaving her home to escape the Mormon faith she no longer calls her own. As she regains her strength, memories of her two children she had to leave behind come flooding back, threatening to break her heart. Camilla is determined to reunite with her daughters. But when news of her father's grave illness reaches her, she knows she must return to the family farm to reconcile with her father. As spring arrives, Camilla returns to Salt Lake City a changed woman, but nothing could prepare her for the changes to the city, to the Mormon Church, and to the family she left behind.

    This review was written for Forsaking All Others - eBook.
    Before reading this book be sure to read 'For Time and Eternity' the first book in this series. After finishing the first book I immediately purchased 'Forsaking All Others' because I was so caught up in the story and had to know what happened next. It's a great story of standing firm in the truth of the gospel. There were parts of this story that I found somewhat disappointing and questionable but overall it was a great book and it certainly gives us a better understanding of what Mormons believe.

    This is a difficult topic: Mormonism. Most of us don't really understand it. Now I understand it better thanks to this book. I was concerned about putting it in our church library before I read it. Now I know it will help others understand this religion. The book reveals how a woman feels in a marriage with other wives and how their teachings deviates from Evangelical Christianity. The main character is so real, that it is hard to put the book down and I wish there was a third book! It explains many problems of how to get along with other wives and the emotions of dealing with it, particularly if you are the first wife.

    This is a book everyone should read to understand Mormonism better and it's pitfalls.

    Having firmly ensconced herself among some of the best authors in Christian historical fiction, Allison Pittman has penned another winner that fans of American and religious history will certainly appreciate. Immediately picking up where she last left her readers, Forsaking All Others concludes the story of Camilla Deardon Fox and her freedom from the early Mormon church.

    Knowing that she must leave the falsehoods of the Mormon faith and return to the Christian teachings of her childhood, Camilla flees her husband and two young daughters as the US is on the brink of war with Utah and the Mormon church. Intending to seek refuge with her sister-in-law, she is stranded in the cold and faces the dangers of frostbite. Thanks to a compassionate Army officer, Camilla gains a safe haven to plot her next move and recover. After several convincing arguments, she persuades Colonel Brandon to take her to Salt Lake City so she may beg housing from her relatives. After having the door slam in her face, she resigns herself to staying with the one woman that won't turn her away--Sister Evangeline. This charity does not come without a price, however, and betrayal becomes the next foe she must face.

    With a contrast so stark you could touch it, Allison Pittman has masterfully created a character in this novel that has grown from her impetuous youth into a woman of considerable grace and strength. With the entire story told in first-person point of view, Camilla's thoughts and emotions were completely transparent, and as a reader, I could identify with her longings to give herself completely over to God and His plan for her life. Compared to the previous novel, For Time and Eternity, Forsaking All Others was less about the strange teachings of the early Mormon church, and more about the journey Camilla took both spiritually and physically. There were times when I wanted to weep for the heartache that Camilla was experiencing, and alternately, I wanted to rejoice in the hope that her future was going to be better than her past.

    While probably a strange backdrop for some fans of Christian fiction, The Sister Wife Series shares something that is indeed a part of early American history. Sadly, many were deceived by it's teachings and the enthusiasm of it's members. I applaud Allison for tastefully creating a fascinating story that I will not soon forget. Highly recommended!

Her heart pines for the two children she left behind, and she prays for a way to be reunited with them again. This historical novel is an exciting page-turner. You won't be able to put it down.

    This book is hard to put down. I did not realize until the end that is was the second in a series. It still was good all on its own.
