A misfit in a Mormon frontier town in 1870s Utah, protagonist Clair Martin shows what polygamy feels like from inside the fold. Her stubborn search for identity takes Clair and a small band of mavericks—white, black and Shoshone—beyond the confines of the Utah Territory to the slums of Reconstruction Dixie, and back again. Here, one young woman’s life becomes a quiet revolution to untangle what she’s inherited from what she really needs.
