"Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favored. And Jacob loved Rachel . . . more than Leah."
In the early days of the Mormon Church, sister-wives Catherine and Sheila must make peace with each other, seeking reconciliation in their love for their husband, John Glendrake.
But plural marriage is just one of the many frontier challenges that John and his stubborn, beleaguered, and endearing wives must face. From Utah to Mexico, they must deal with fire, drought, disappointment, and heartbreak. Through it all, and despite separation in life and in death, their relationships grow and their devotions deepen.
The Leah Shadow is a story of adventure, tenderness, human dignity, and, most of all, understanding, forgiveness, and love. (Publisher website)
