Wife No. 19
by Ann Eliza Young

“Amazing story.” -Marcia S.

Ann Eliza Young was twenty-four when Brigham Young, the sixty-seven-year-old leader of the Latter Day Saint movement, married her.

During the course of his life Brigham Young married a total of fifty-five wives so when Ann married him she joined the eighteen other women in his house to become his nineteenth living wife.

Ann Eliza Young’s book Wife No. 19 is a cutting criticism of nineteenth century Mormonism and the beliefs that were held by the Latter Day Saints at that time.

Beginning with the advent of Mormonism she provides a history of the religion from the moment when it was founded by Joseph Smith through to the moment that she left Young’s household and divorced him.

This book covers the persecution that the Church suffered in its early days, such as the war in Missouri in 1838 when Mormons were targeted, and at points massacred, by local inhabitants.

Ann, however, makes very clear that these attacks in no way justified Mormonism’s later murky history when the Mountain Meadows massacre occurred against immigrants to Utah and the Church’s association with ruthless men like John D. Lee.

But she reserves her strongest criticism for the Later Day Saint’s doctrine of “Celestial Marriage”, which in the nineteenth century largely referred to the practice of polygamy.

She had been brought up within polygamist household and so therefore knew the woes associated with it.

Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances forced Ann, like her mother before her, into a polygamist relationship.

Wife No. 19 is one of the most powerful critiques of polygamy, written by a woman who had actually lived through its hardships.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints largely distanced itself from polygamy in the later-nineteenth century, much due to the work of Ann Eliza Young. On the books publication The New York Times stated that “Polygamy has received a heavy blow.”

Ann Eliza Young was one of Brigham Young’s fifty-five wives and later a critic of polygamy. She spoke out against the suppression of women and was an advocate for women’s rights during the 19th century. Her book Wife No. 19 was first published in 1875 and she died in 1917.

Pete Talbott is a harried Boston computer wonk still grieving over the death of his wife when he finds himself at the wrong end of Gino Parini’s .45 reading his own obituary torn from the morning newspaper. Talbott figures it is all a big mistake, until Parini shows him his wife’s obituary too. That is a mystery which Pete Talbott can’t leave well-enough alone in this murder mystery conspiracy thriller. Someone with a scalpel and embalming table is planting bodies under other people’s names. It doesn’t take Pete long to learn that the only things that thrive in dark places on a steady diet of b… s… are good mushrooms and really bad government.

The hunt for who is behind it and why leads Pete to Sandy Kasmarek, a kick-ass art gallery attendant on Chicago’s stylish North Michigan Avenue, whose late and unlamented husband is also one of them. With a photographer’s eye, the quick feet of a black belt, and fingers that can hot-wire a car in seconds, she has the skill set you wouldn’t expect from a good Chicago catholic-school girl. Coupled with Pete in this political action adventure thriller, they soon find themselves embroiled in government corruption, organized crime, and an FBI undercover shell game that includes enough action, romance, thrills, and stark terror that even the Undertaker soon finds himself in trouble.

From a funeral home in Indiana, to car chases on the Dan Ryan Expressway, a bloody townhouse in Boston’s Back Bay, snipers in New York’s Washington Square, the cramped lower bunk on an AMTRAK train, they find themselves knee-deep in sleazy lawyers, corrupt County sheriffs, the FBI, and Mafia hit men. The Undertaker is a non-stop, cross-country suspense thriller, because if Pete and Sandy can’t stop him, they know they will be next on the Undertaker’s list.
