Englishwoman Fanny Stenhouse arrived in Utah in 1857 with her husband, newspaperman T.B.H. Stenhouse. Mr. Stenhouse was a missionary and elder of the Mormon Church and a practicing polygamist. Fanny's unvarnished, “true history by a real Mormon woman” was a sensational expose of Mormonism and a plea for women to be freed from the institution of multiple marriage.

In her sympathetic preface, Harriet Beecher Stowe says, “Let every happy wife and mother who reads these lines give her sympathy, prayers, and efforts to free her sisters from this degrading bondage.”
