Review: One for Kami by Charlene A. Wilson

Published: January 2014, Astraea Press, 28 pages
My Source: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

Description: Kami is faced with a heartbreaking truth; instead of being a member of the poor lower class who are allowed only one spouse, she finds the love of her life is an elite and bound by law to wed three wives to do his part to eliminate the poverty-stricken condition of their world. How can she stand to share him? Why can’t he be poor the way she thought he was when she fell in love with him?

Desperate and determined to find a realm that doesn’t have such dictates, she travels to dimension Three-Two-Three to begin her search. But is love truer in a place that only allows one spouse than it is in Ian’s heart? 

My Review: The summary basically sums it up, which leads to my only complaint--I wish it was longer! Kami can't stand the thought of being the first of three wives because what if Ian loves another better? She decides to sacrifice it all and leave, much to his dismay. She has some real possibilities in this new dimension, but realizes that real and true feelings are hard to get rid of.

At first, I thought Kami was acting a bit rash. If she's the first, chances are, he'll love her the best, but when I really thought about it, that would be easier said than done. If I were in her shoes, I'd probably feel the same way.

I loved the way it ended and how it showed that true love conquers all.

Content: no language or violence; a gay character who flirts with another man, a married man pursuing a single woman; I would consider it clean.
