Product Description

"This book deserves to be on the shelves of all who desire to know more about the lives of LDS women during this period."
—Vickie Cleverley Speek - Association for Mormon Letters

This groundbreaking series recounts the lives of women of faith and dedication in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Often using the women's own words, these stories share their trials, their triumphs, and their testimonies.

This volume, the second in a series of seven, features women born between 1821 and 1845 and presents both well-known women and previously obscure ones whose lives of faith also deserve emulation. They lived in an age when Latter-day Saint leaders emphasized the literal gathering of Israel, and, for that reason, the stories you will find here include accounts of the trek to Utah and the settlement of new communities in the West.

You will encounter not only such well-known figures as women's rights advocate Emmeline B. Wells and Relief Society general president Zina D.H. Young but also a convert of African descent who walked from New York to Nauvoo, a London seamstress who survived the events that befell the ill-fated Martin Handcart Company, a Norwegian native determined to support her family amidst famine, and an Australian Saint shipwrecked en route to Zion.

The faith these women exhibited as they rejoiced in blessings and dealt with struggles provides a model for us in facing our own challenges as we strive to build lives of faith today.

An inspirational read that speaks to the heart
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

This book, like volume 1, is filled with inspiring stories of faithful LDS women. Their struggles, though unique in some ways, ring familiar to those striving to live their faith. The words of many of these women, quoted from their own journals and other carefully researched sources (the chapters are complete with detailed footnotes), speak to the heart. This book can be read straight through or chapter by chapter in any order.

Thought-provoking history
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

This book opens a window to the past--I can see the similarities of life experiences, concerns, etc that I share with these women. It's a kind of comforting book--comforting that women's character has not much changed throughout history and also comforting that I do not have to go through the same trials that these women did!
Great read. I like to read chapter by chapter, for periodic inspiration.

Stories that inspire and give hope
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

I loved reading of the faith and courage of these LDS women. Their stories motivate me to appreciate the many blessings and comforts of my own life. I particularly was touched by the emotions expressed in the excerpts taken from their journals. Their examples of enduring to the end are remarkable and give me hope in my own life.
