Summary
Amaranth, the first of Zachariah's 50 wives, escapes her polygamist life with her two daughters, Amity and Sorrow. After four days of hard driving, Amaranth crashes their car near a dilapidated gas station and farm owned by Bradley in rural Oklahoma. Amaranth sees the hope of a new life with Bradley, but Sorrow wants to return home to Zachariah. He is "god" and together they plan to create a "new Jesus".
