    "I don't believe this solves the topic at all. It gives one specific non-fiction book that is based on a spiritual Mormon. The objective was to give the best Mormon books and in my opinion teach me about Mormons. There are quite a few links and pages to other recommend mormon books which is why I will raise this rating to a 2 instead of 1."

    "I found inspiration in this book, but not the inspiration the Mormon "faith" may portray. Instead, the inspiration you can find here is to live authentically and tell the truth about your own past, facing the inner demons you carry around. It was a life-changing experience for me to realize the wrongs I've dealt with the last 20 years, and I will be confronting the men in my family who've abused me over the years after reading this. "

    "I bought this book several years ago when I was contemplating Romney for President. I wanted a better picture of who a Mormon is. This book gave me more than I had bargained for. It told me what American is and why Mormonism is the American dream religion. I voted Obama in the end."

    "The perfect Mormon wife in the perfect Mormon town has a secret: she doesn’t believe in God. Her husband has a secret, too: he’s in love with another man. She’s stood by her husband for two years, tending their secrets, fading into the easy background of Rexburg, Idaho. But when she meets a man who calls himself “X,” an artist on a rambling sabbatical through the Western States, her resolve to be the perfect wife finally crumbles. At first her affair with X is just another secret to keep. But she quickly realizes she can no longer be content with the structured, wholesome life of a Rexburg woman. Though she fears her husband’s reaction and the town’s rejection, she leaves to join X on his journey through the Rockies. Amid mountains and deserts, surrounded by art and creation, she discovers the realities of eternity. But just as she is beginning to build a life without religion, a death in the family pulls her and X back to Rexburg. She must return to the place that created and confined her, this time not as the perfect Mormon wife, but as something monstrous to the people she loves."

    "This solution is okay because the book does revolve around a Mormon girl, but it could be more focused on Mormon issues. "

    "There are some very real topics in this book. It is not a book about religion in the sense of like the book of Mormon. It is more so a very vivid and realistic picture of things that could go on outside the veil of church. It may offend some but be an awakening for other. "
