In Their Own Words: Women and the Story of Nauvoo
How would you feel when you heard the news of Joseph and Hyrum
Smith's martyrdom? What would you write in your journal about the
event? What would you write to a loved one serving in a distant land?
The feelings, experiences, personal testimonies, hopes, prayers, and
dreams of twenty-five women are compiled in this extraordinary work by
Carol Cornwall Madsen. These women found their lives transformed by
their conversion to Mormonism and shaped by their experiences thereafter.
The voices you hear as you read these documents are clearly their own,
from their own perspectives and in their vernacular as they lived in the
City of Joseph.
Each woman's background and setting at the time of her writing are
explained by the author. The writings include diary entries, letters to
loved ones and dear friends, and reminiscences. Readers will find
thoughts and experiences about family and friends, religion, materialstruggles, sorrow, self-appraisal and faith.
