    "I was expecting to see a romance book when the topic mentions a book with the word wife in the title. The Kitchen God's Wife is just a regular book about families/children. I only recommend it if you do not have anything else to read at the moment."

    "It was a nice book and good to read.This a very interesting and informative book about the Mormons and the early formation of this religion group. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to know a little more about polygamy and how it worked or didn't work and why the Mormon church decided to abandon this practice.Gives you great insight into polygamy and it's effect on women."

    "This book is okay. It is a fast read, but light. If you are looking for something profound, this book isn't it. But if you want something to read on the subway, sure. Something to pass the time. But there a lot of books with "wife" in the title, so I would not put this at the top of the list."

    "This book is set in the 1800s and is a fascinating read. The ending is disappointing since the original author died and someone else completed it but it's still well worth a read."

    "I love books about World War II, so had high expectations of this one. There were bright moments in the text, but there were also several detracting elements that kept me from getting overly involved. It's still a worthy read if you enjoy history from this time, but there are other novels more worthy of your time."

    "The was a bit of a chore to get through, and though it was written well enough, there was exactly one (short) chapter about the mapmakers wife. A few of my friends were also disappointed by this revelation, but were more forgiving than I was about it."
