Now… 
here is what this fabulous book is all about!
 
An impressive work of literary fiction that accurately
explores the struggles of being raised in a polygamous community. Jensen’s novel
explores the unique strengths and weaknesses of the bonds in a polygamous
family.
Gabriel’s Daughters wrestles with issues of polygamy,
homosexuality, and modernity through the lives of the large, loving, and
polygamous
Martin family. The story is told primarily through the eyes
of Zina Martin, a young girl who, upon discovering she is impregnated by her
“sterile” teacher—and will soon be married off to a man three times
her age— escapes the enclosed polygamous town of Gabriel’s Landing, Utah.

Zina then embarks on a journey full of self-discovery, yet
she can never completely escape the longing she has for her family and even the
controversial and outdated lifestyle she once lived. Through both tears and
triumph, Jensen has crafted a moving story that not only acts as insightful
social commentary but also prompts readers to reevaluate their lives.
