The Sister Wife is the first book in a new Brides of Gabriel historical series set during the formation of the Mormon edict of polygamy. Award-winning author Diane Noble explores the inner conflicts, emotions, and decisions of three women married to the same man. A moving tale of faith and doubt, love and commitment for fans of Big Love or those who devoured Carolyn Jessop's Escape, The Sister Wife follows a budding family living in close community with the controversial Mormon prophet Joseph Smith as they are pulled deeper into the world of polygamy.

Praise For The Sister Wife

“Diane Noble not only explores the early days of the Mormon church; she also probes deeply into the human heart... the pages turn faster and faster…right up to the breathless conclusion and the promise of more drama to come.”
-Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Thorn in My Heart

“Diane Noble is at her best in The Sister Wife. I found myself transported by the richness of her words, the authenticity of her research and the depth of her spirit. Well done!”
-Jane Kirkpatrick, award-winning author of An Absence So Great

“The first book in the Brides of Gabriel series introduces us to the foundation of polygamy in Mormonism. A well-researched, gripping story written with depth of emotion, it tactfully illustrates different belief systems and explores plural marriage without sensationalizing it.”
-Romantic Times BOOKclub

Praise for The Veil: “Prepare to burn the midnight oil. I couldn’t put this book down. The Veil revealed a shocking early Mormon practice.”
-Francine Rivers, New York Times bestselling author

“The Sister Wife is the first in Noble’s Brides of Gabriel series, which, given the popularity of Big Love—the HBO television drama about a fundamentalist Mormon family in Utah—should be a big hit with readers.”
