Nancy I hope you got my PM. I sent you my e-mail address also. Click on the person's name and you will be sent to their page where you can then click on pm. I did a lot of cutting and pasting since you can only send l000 characters, so I hope you got 3 pm's.
I would recommend Jerald and Sandra Tanner's site [www.utlm.org.
] They are ex-Mormons and this is a Christian site with a lot of info and links.
The film, "The Godmakers" is a classic about what Mormonism really teaches. There are many good books, but there is so much on the web you don't even need to do that, unless you see something that appeals to you.
I read the book your mentioned and while it has some info about the temple wedding, the girl in the story is very mixed up and disturbed and it is a rather depressing book. She leaves the Mormon church, goes through several marriages, adultery and relationships, spends time in a mental institution ...no happy ending.
Do you know what archeological evidence exists for Mormonism? Zero, zilch, nada.
