For Time & Eternity by Allison Pittman {BLOG TOUR for Glass Roads}

For Time and Eternity (Sister Wife)
Book Description:  All Camilla Deardon knows of the Mormons camping nearby is the songs she hears floating on the breeze. Then she meets one of them—a young man named Nathan Fox. Never did she imagine he would be so handsome, so charming, especially after Mama and Papa’s warnings to stay away. Though she knows she should obey her parents, Camilla can’t refuse her heart. But even Nathan’s promises cannot prepare her for what she will face in Utah.

My Review:  This is the first book I have read by Allison Pittman.  I love her flowing style of writing that kept me turning-page-after-page knowing that Camilla was, maybe, in "over her head." 
I have read other fiction stories about the Mormons and of course I've read nonfiction reads about their religion.  Mormons have always intrigued me because they can't/don't see God but they tend to see themselves as gods.  A religion that is hard for me to understand!  
But after reading Time & Eternity I felt that I had a better understanding of these misguided peoples.
Camilla was one of those characters that tugged at my heart and made me feel her pain, her loneliness, and her desire for true love.  Oh, the pain of following your heart!
As Camilla journeys along her path with the Oh! so handsome and charming Nathan who Camilla commits to with her whole heart only to have share him!  A well written part of the story that makes the reader cringe and cry but holds out hope that all will end well!
The story is about Camilla (and Nathan) and her journey.  Also, included in this story is more about the sister wife.  The sister wife is the "other" wife but all the wives of the husband are "sisters."  This is a hard piece of information to mull over.  I just can't imagine sharing my husband with more women!  
The story is told through Camilla's "voice."  The story does not go through the journey the Mormons are taking in this book but is more about Camilla's journey with Nathan and the sister wife.
I found this book to a grandtastic read, as well as, a heavy, emotional read!  So much to take in and so much to think about!  It's not a book that I can easily read a second time for it has stayed with me the first time!
This 5 star read is  an eye-opener and will long be remembered!
