A short introduction
From the author of The Immigrant, another stimulating novel that will linger with you regardless of your faith or beliefs.rn rnAfter enduring early parental deaths, Naamah Carter discovers renewed meaning to her strong Christian beliefs through Joseph Smith's testaments. His following in Peterborough, New Hampshire flourishes, yet Naamah, her beloved Aunt Susan, and other believers suffer family strife and growing community resentment. She leaves her unfriendly situation and journeys to Nauvoo to be among thousands building their Prophet‘s revelation of an earthly Zion on a Mississippi River promontory. There, her faith is tested, enduring loss of loved ones and violence from those longing to destroy Nauvoo. With the western exodus imminent, she faces a decision that runs counter to her soul and all she holds sacred - whether to become Brigham Young's plural wife.rn rnThis meticulously researched novel weaves the momentous events of Joseph Smith's martyrdom and Brigham Young's succession with Naamah's story and offers differing perspectives to create a mosaic of Nauvoo, the crucible out of which arose today's Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints.
Alfred Woollacott, III retired from KPMG in 2002 after a career spanning 34 years, choosing to reside full time at his summer residence on Martha's Vineyard. Being "45 minutes from America" and with a 50 - 60 hour per week void to fill, he began dabbling into his family history. His dabbling grew into an obsession and he published several genealogical summaries of his ancestors. But certain ones absorbed him such that he could not leave them. So he researched their lives and times further while evolving his writing skills from "just the facts ma'am" to a fascinating narrative style. Thus with imagination, anchored in fact and tempered with plausibility, a remote ancestor can achieve a robust life as envisioned by a writer with a few drops of his ancestorï¿½s blood in his veins.
