In many ways, the Browns are like any other middle-American family. They eat, play, and pray together, squabble and hug, striving to raise happy, well-adjusted children while keeping their relationship loving and strong. The difference is, there are five adults in the openly polygamous Brown marriage—Kody and his four wives—who among them have seventeen children. Since TLC first launched its popular reality program Sister Wives, the Browns have become one of the most famous families in the country. Now Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn reveal in their own words exactly how their special relationship works—the love and faith that drew them together, the plusses and pitfalls of having sister wives, and the practical and emotional complications of a lifestyle viewed by many with distrust, prejudice, even fear. With the candor and frankness that have drawn millions to their show, they talk about what makes their fascinating family work, addressing the topics that intrigue outsiders: How do the four relationships differ? What effect does a polygamous upbringing have on their children? What are the challenges—emotional, social, or financial—involved in living this lifestyle? Is it possible for all four sister wives to feel special when sharing a husband—and what happens when jealousy arises? How has being on camera changed their lives? And what’s it like to add a new wife to the family—or to be that new wife? Filled with humor, warmth, surprising insights, and remarkable honesty, this is a singular story of plural marriage and all the struggles and joys that go with it. At heart, it’s a love story—unconventional but immediately recognizable in the daily moments of trust, acceptance, forgiveness, passion, and commitment that go into making one big, happy, extraordinary family.

I don't know where to start

I haven't seen the TV series, but this book made me so incredibly sad. I am sure the last things the Sister Wives want is pity, as they are fulfilling their celestial duty, but no matter how open minded I try to be (different strokes for different folks) I just cannot absorb the principal of plural marriage, Christian or otherwise. Kody's story isn't much present here and the Sister Wives each have their own voice. I was amazed to find out that by and large these women did not all live under the same roof with Kody - so how could this be a system that works? It seems that there is jealousy, rivalry, depression and neglect. I mean, they have 17 children between them. These women are essentially living as single mothers with Kody only there on his designated days and Sundays (when they are ALL together), so how on Earth do these kids get the paternal attention they deserve. And the wives are expected to cope 24/5 with an average of four kids apiece. And what about the emotional nourishment of the wives - they need attention too. It was fascinating to read, but behind the smiles I can't help but feel there is a deep sadness in each of the women. I hope they manage to find a way to make it work.
