Hang 'Em High Hoedown Day #2: Don't You Marry the Mormon Boys by Janet Kay Jensen

Welcome to day two of the Hang 'Em High Hoedown! You can still enter to win yesterday's prize, your choice of two books by Annette Lyon, by clicking this link and following the instructions. The deadline for that prize is tonight, August 2nd, at midnight, MST.

Today's prize is Don't You Marry the Mormon Boys by award-winning novelist Janet Kay Jensen. A synopsis of the book:

As medical students at the University of Utah, Andy and Louisa fall in love - but can a mainstream Mormon and a Fundamental polygamist overcome the cultural barriers between them? Both realize that their choices will not only affect their own lives, but will also have an impact on their family, friends, and even their communities. Fearing that the sacrifices required of them would be too great, they go their separate ways. Yet for Andy in Kentucky and Louisa in Utah, life does not go as they'd planned. While Andy is serving as a country doctor and trying to bury his pain, Louisa is coming to terms with the fact that all is not as perfect in her tight-knit community as she'd believed. As doctors, each will have to choose between keeping the peace in their communities or doing what they know is right. And someday, both will have to face their past and decide if they can make the sacrifice to be together.

And ... you guessed it - this book has a horse in it. Because it's a hoedown. And hoedowns have horses. It's the law of the West.

Well Tristi I can find her blog now, but I don't see a Follow This Blog widget. I must be missing it. :p Her book does look interesting though, so I'd love a chance to win it. :)
