Book Review

Janet Kay Jensen was a presenter at the Cedar Fort Writer's Conference. Her book, "Don't You Marry the Mormon Boys" is a fun and entertaining story about two people with conflicting lifestyles who meet at medical school and fall in love, but go their separate ways. She is a polygamist and returns to her community to practice medicine, which gives an interesting look at that belief system. He is a Mormon and moves to Kentucky to set up a small practice. They never forget each other, though, and the story takes you through their ups and downs , wondering if they'll get back together.

For those who still believe that Mormons are polygamists, this book addresses those issues and differences in an informative yet entertaining way. And for anyone else, it's simply a fun read.
