Product Description

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, material

struggles, sorrow, self-appraisal and faith.
