Balancing Bountiful : what I learned about feminism from my polygamist grandmothers / Mary Jayne Blackmore.

Summary:

As the daughter of Mormon leader Winston Blackmore, Mary Jayne Blackmore grew up within the closed-off polygamist community of Bountiful, B.C. From a childhood in an idyllic but sheltered community to early adulthood in an arranged marriage, ensuing divorce, and eventual return to Bountiful, this is Mary Jayne's journey of coming of age and coming to terms with her background as she strives to answer the question: what is the right kind of family, the right kind of woman and the right kind of feminist?
