520    "The practice of plural marriage, commonly known as 
       polygamy, stirred intense controversy in postbellum 
       America until 1890, when the Church of Jesus Christ of 
       Latter-day Saints first officially abolished the practice.
       Elder Northfield's Home, published by A. Jennie Bartlett 
       in 1882, is both a staunchly antipolygamy novel and a call
       for the sentimental repatriation of polygamy's victims. 
       Her book traces the fate of a virtuous and educated 
       English immigrant woman, Marion Wescott, who marries a 
       Mormon elder, Henry Northfield. Shocked when her husband 
       violates his promise not to take a second wife, Marion 
       attempts to flee during the night, toddler son in her arms,
       pulling her worldly possessions in his toy wagon. She 
       returns to her husband, however, and the balance of the 
       novel traces the effects of polygamy on Marion, Henry, and
       their children; their eventual rejection of plural 
       marriage; and their return to a normal and healthy family 
       structure. Nicole Tonkovich's critical introduction 
       includes both historical contextualization and comments on
       selected primary documents, providing a broader look at 
       the general public's reception of the practice of polygamy
       in the nineteenth century."--|cProvided by publisher. 
520    "Nineteenth-century novel that advocates the abolition of 
       plural marriage in the Mormon religion and the 
       repatriation of former practitioners by tracing the 
       marital misfortunes of a Mormon convert"--|cProvided by
