Thirteen year old Kyra has grown up in an isolated community without questioning the fact that her father has three wives and she has twenty brothers and sisters That is without questioning it much if you don t count her visits to the Ironton County Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books or her secret meetings with Joshua the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chosen for her .
