    Polygamist's Wife is the true story of a woman married to modern-day polygamist for more than twenty years. Now, a good book about the problems, lifestyles, conflicts and circumstances of contemporary polygamy is long overdue. Though obviously no reliable statistics are available, reasoned estimates tell us that several thousand men and women in Utah and surrounding states are currently living. Many eras claim a "modern woman" for their time—the Gibson Girl and "New Woman" of the late s, "true womanhood" of the mids, and, of course, the "flappers" of the s. Here we're not considering the rebellious young woman exploring new freedoms who came to personify the Twenties in later times (see Modern Youth).

    SUSAN SWAN's fiction has been published in twenty countries and received numerous first novel, The Biggest Modern Woman of the World (), was a finalist for the Governor General’s Award for fiction and the Smith’s Best First Novel Award, and is currently being made into a film. Her other books include the short story collection Stupid Boys are Good to Relax With (), the Author: Susan Swan.   But women have been writing great books for centuries. In fact, you could probably spend a lifetime just reading great classics by women and never run out of reading material. This list is just a sampling of great books written by women of the past. For the purposes of this list, I’ve defined classics as books that are more than 50 years : Teresa Preston.
