Product Description

November 1838: The scattered members of the Johnson family struggle to survive the upheaval that somes in the wake of Governor Boggs's extermination order, fighting disease and poverty, and persecution and chastisement even as they and the other faithful Saints mourn the plight of the imprisoned Prophet and fear his imminent martyrdom. Back in Kirtland, Johnson family patriarch Ezekiel battles alcoholism and his conflicting emotions of bitterness toward Mormonism and love for his family. This culmination to the epic tale of this family illustrated the resilience and redemptive healing power of love—the complex yet enduring love between husbands and wives, parents and children, and a Prophet and his people—and the love of a Savior, whose own sacrifice marks the path for us all. In witnessing Ezekiel's life decisions and their impact on his posterity, we grasp the promise that those who sow righteously shall reap joy.

Adds a indepth understanding of the lives of the early saints.
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

I am biased as I am a descendent of Joel Hills Johnson and George Washington Johnson. I found all five volumes very good reading and added to my understanding of the trials, joys and challenges facing these wonderful ancestors. For those that enjoyed "The Work and the Glory" series - this is in the same line. I found I was anxiously awaiting the next book.

I would recommend it for any ancestor - but it would be a good read for anyone.
