    I am a big fan of Allison Pittman, but the sequel to The Sister Wives series was disappointing. The first third of the book dealt primarily with travel out of Utah. While the issue of polygamy is an explosive one, there was something lacking in the story line. It seemed that after all the lies that were spread by leadership in the Mormon church, Camilla walked away unscathed, without her former husband having put up a fight for his two children. The ending was like a slow leak. I was left wondering if there was another book to follow, or this was the last of it.

    Forsaking All Others is the second book in The Sister Wife Series by Allison Pittman. I did not realize it was part of a series until I had it in my hands, and was worried it would be hard to jump into not having read the first book. It turned out to be very easy to read separately. The story: Camilla Fox is a married mother with two children living in Utah in the 1800s with her husband Nathan. When Nathan obeys their religious leaders and takes another wife, Camilla flees their home, leaving him and their daughters. She desperately wants her husband to leave his new wife, but if he won't she dreams of starting a new life with her daughters at her parents home. A snowstorm nearly kills her, and she ends up in the care of the United States Army until the Spring.

    Although this wasn't the type of book I usually read, I did enjoy it. The story was easy to get into, and the characters had depth. I would be interested in reading the first book in the series now. Personally I enjoyed the story line as I live in the Salt Lake City area of Utah, so it was fun hearing the referrences to where I live

    I read the first book in this series and have waited patiently for this book. I am glad that it finally here

    Camilla is found by the military in the snowstorm that we left her in at the end of the first book. She forms a friendship with the forts commander a fellow Christian. She feels like she needs to go back to Salt Lake to see what her options are. I feel I would tell to much if I reveal much more but it is a heartwrenching decision and I admired her fortitude. I was a bit disappointed in the ending. I thought there was going to be more of a confrontation at the end and it kinda feel a little flat for me but I was mostly satisfied. I found it kind of interesting that the way people who left the church back then were more more or less treated very simiarly the same as the Mormon church treats plagiamists today.

    A great series and I am sad that it was only two books long. Although this is the second in the series you do not hae to read the first book. But I highly recommend it.

    I received this book as part of Tyndale House's blog review program and received a copy for review.
