Product Description

Revered as an "elect lady" and denounced as a "damned liar," Emma Hale Smith had a full life of contradictions - trials and triumphs, sorrows and strength, fears and faith. Raised in a well-respected family, she gave up everything to marry a poor, uneducated farm boy. Her unwavering support of the Prophet Joseph through intense persecution and suffering is legendary, and although she lived in relative comfort and security in her later years, Emma's life continued to be laced with tragedy and heartache.

This well-documented narrative provides a personal glimpse into the life of a woman who remains one of the most mysterious and misunderstood women in Church history today. With beautiful full-color illustrations by renowned artist Liz Lemon Swindle, the story is told using many first-person accounts. Readers will gain valuable insights into the remarkable life and character of Emma Hale Smith.

This book is written in an engaging manner, but isn't fiction. I appreciated all the research and documentation the author did to make this an honest biography of a wonderful woman.

I especially loved reading more about the last part of Emma's life (after Joseph died) and knowing "the rest of the story."
