I was very intrigued when I first read the back of Allison Pittman's new book For Time and Eternity. I found in the first few chapters that I was emotionally invested to the main character Camilla. My mind was yelling at her to not leave her home. As she was becoming enthralled by her new love and believing lies.
My heart was hurting for the life that she was leading. I was aching for her to learn the truth of her childhood. This book gave me insight to the Mormon religion. This is the first book that I have read by Allison Pittman and I look forward to her next book in her new Sister Wife Series.
Here is more info on the book:
When Camilla Deardon hears their songs coming on a breeze, they sound just like the songs in her own church. This is all she knows of the Mormons camping near her family's farm. Mama and Papa warned her to stay away, but she doesn't understand their fear, especially after meeting a young Mormon man named Nathan Fox. So handsome. So charming. His eyes hold the very image of this Zion he talks about, and his step seems a promise to take her there.
Though Camilla knows she should obey her parents, she can't refuse her heart. But Nathan's promises can never prepare her for what she will face in Utah. She's been willing to share her husband's faith, but can she share her marriage with another woman?
