The 19th Wife: polygamy

Has reading The 19th Wife changed your understanding or views of polygamy at all?

Were you suprised to see how challenging it was for Chauncey and Gilbert to practice plural marriage? How does Queenie’s husband Hiram Alton’s experience with polygamy differ? What are the factors that contribute to this difference?

How do you feel about BeckyLyn’s desire to return to a life of polygamy in Mesadale?
