Product Description

Emma Smith: an Elect Lady reveals the story of an extraordinary woman who lived in a trying time. As the

wife of Joseph Smith, the first Latter-day Saint Prophet, Emma knew much of religious bigotry, vexatious

lawsuits, and lawless brutality. She comforted Joseph in his extremities, bore his children, and wrote of her

abiding love for him. Yet, as time passed and Joseph was murdered, Emma struggled to find her place. Her

life story, unique from beginning to end, is presented here in a question and answer format to supply readers

with easy access to her biographical information and increased understanding of the trials and triumphs of

this remarkable woman.
