Summary:
"For Dorothy Allred Solomon, daughter of her father's fourth plural wife, twenty-eighth of forty-eight children, childhood was beset by secrecy and lies, by poverty and imprisonment and government raids. Solomon, herself monogamous, broke with the fundamentalist group over her desire for equality and her inability to reconcile the polygamist doctrine with the vastly different laws of the state.
