Gabriel's Daughters By Janet Jensen and Giveaway

Gabriel's Daughters wrestles with issues of polygamy, homosexuality,

and modernity through the lives of the large, loving, and polygamous

Martin family. The story is told primarily through the eyes of Zina Martin,

a young girl who, upon discovering she is impregnated by her "sterile"

teacher—and will soon be married off to a man three times her age—

escapes the enclosed polygamous town of Gabriel's Landing, Utah.

Zina then embarks on a journey full of self-discovery, yet she can never

completely escape the longing she has for her family and even the

controversial and outdated lifestyle she once lived. Through both tears

and triumph, Jensen has crafted a moving story that not only acts as

insightful social commentary but also prompts readers to reevaluate

their lives.

• Author of award-winning books Don't Marry the Mormon Boys and

The Book Lover’s Cookbook.

• An intriguing, fresh look into the lives of polygamists. Jensen explores

not only the horrors of polygamy, but also the many uniquely positive


• Awarded a silver medal in the 2013 Readers’ Favorite contest.

• Appeals to women's fiction readers as well as readers invested in

social issues.

• Offers moral questions that will have readers pondering the story long

after the last page has been turned.
