In many ways, the Browns are like any other middle-American
family. They eat, play, and pray together, squabble and hug,
striving to raise happy, well-adjusted children while
keeping their relationship loving and strong. The difference
is, there are five adults in the openly polygamous Brown
marriage—Kody and his four wives—who among them have
Since TLC first launched its popular reality program Sister
Wives, the Browns have become one of the most famous
families in the country. Now Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine,
and Robyn reveal in their own words exactly how their
special relationship works—the love and faith that drew them
together, the plusses and pitfalls of having sister wives,
and the practical and emotional complications of a lifestyle
viewed by many with distrust, prejudice, even fear. With the
candor and frankness that have drawn millions to their show,
they talk about what makes their fascinating family work,
addressing the topics that intrigue outsiders: How do the
four relationships differ? What effect does a polygamous
upbringing have on their children? What are the
challenges—emotional, social, or financial—involved in
living this lifestyle? Is it possible for all four sister
wives to feel special when sharing a husband—and what
happens when jealousy arises? How has being on camera
changed their lives? And what’s it like to add a new wife to
the family—or to be that new wife?
Filled with humor, warmth, surprising insights, and
remarkable honesty, this is a singular story of plural
marriage and all the struggles and joys that go with it. At
heart, it’s a love story—unconventional but immediately
recognizable in the daily moments of trust, acceptance,
forgiveness, passion, and commitment that go into making one
big, happy, extraordinary family.
