Publisher Comments:

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 whats 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, its 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.

Synopsis:

The stars of the hit show Sister Wives present an uncensored, unedited look at life in their plural marriage.

Synopsis:

The stars of the hit show Sister Wives present an uncensored, unedited look at life in their plural marriage.

The Brown family, open polygamists, are the stars of the popular reality program Sister Wives, a hit for TLC not only because of the unusual subject matter, but also because of the honesty and frankness of the entire Brown family. Now in their own words they reveal even more to help viewers better understand the lifestyle, the family dynamics, the experience of living “on camera,” and the love shared in their unusual family, in a candid memoir that openly discusses the details of how their special relationship works. 

The Browns offer honest answers to the questions viewers who turn in every week can’t help but have: How do all the wives feel special while sharing one husband? How does a woman decide to become a sister-wife, especially if she’s not born into the lifestyle? How do the four relationships differ from each other? How do child-rearing conflicts get resolved? How does the sole husband navigate the emotions of the women and handle jealously among his four wives?, and many more. With the trademark candor that has drawn millions of viewers to their show, the Browns tell readers everything they’ve ever wanted to know about life in a plural marriage.

This family's story really opened my eyes to the world of religious, legal polygamy. I was surprised at how "normal" this polygamous family really is. If we can accept others because of their race or sexual orientations, why can we not accept them for who they choose to marry? I consider myself to be a fairly conservative person, yet I do recommend this book to anyone who has uncertainty or curiosity surrounding polygamy, the religion behind it and just how they make it work. This was a great read.
