Set in Southern Utah in the late 1800s, The PrincipleWife centers around the love story of Rebecca and Benjamin as they embark on a journey of living “the principle” known as plural marriage. At a time when they face severe difficulty and uncertainty,
could adding more members to the household really be the answer?
Educated, cultured, and lovely–inside and out–Rebecca left her refined Philadelphia to build a new life in the West. Buoyed with her renewed faith and a fervent love for the man who is taking her away from her upbringing, Rebecca is committed to raising her own family, along with an orchard of apples in a foreign landscape—no matter what!
With a young heart and a boyish face, Benjamin sees no obstacle that can’t be overcome. His relentless effort forges a farm out of a harsh landscape, revealing his stamina and will to succeed. His self-sufficiency is a reassurance to the love of his life, Rebecca, that her instinct to follow him out west, was the right decision.
A War-weathered Captain; a man accustomed to getting what he wants. Sent by the U.S. Government to investigate salacious reports of women in distress, his secret quest to pursue a youthful love lies in the pursuit of the very woman he is called to indite. Erastus’ private interests can’t help but conflict with his professional assignment.
With a penchant for cussing
and no stranger to hard work,
her no-nonsense presence is a force to be reckoned with. A widow of stature with the willpower to prove it, her headstrong strength grounds her survivor-independence. Undaunted by two feisty boys to raise, there is nothing that will get in her way, except perhaps, the will of another woman—or two.
Her beauty and innocence cover the fear she holds inside. Elsa is youthful, courageous, and alone. An outcast from her family, she has given up everything for her religious convictions. Now, with an ocean between her past and the unknown future in front of her, her prairie-dusted music box is her only anchor… until she joins a new family.
