ABOUT THE BOOK

Shunned by the women of her family for writing a tell-all memoir, Elizabeth Rodriguez escapes to northern Wisconsin for peace and inspiration. Before she can even get settled in, an obituary in the local newspaper catches her attention. As soon as she learns about Erwin Wilson and his twenty-three wives throughout his life, she makes it her mission to learn more. She begins by interviewing some of the locals and his remaining ex-wives, and she soon develops plans for her next bestseller. When her younger brother unexpectedly appears at her doorstep, she puts him to work helping her research and gather information. But with each mystery Elizabeth uncovers, she comes closer to the truth: maybe some stories aren’t meant to be told, and maybe building family trust is more important.
