I thought I already knew much about Lucy Mack Smith but this book was an eye-opener to the incredible trials she and her family faced even before Joseph Smith Jr. restored the gospel. I was in awe of her stalwart faith and love for her family. It is no wonder that she and Emma Smith had such a close relationship - both women experienced an inconceivable amount of sorrow and grief in their lifetimes. Reading about Lucy's unshakeable testimony and faith was a great inspiration for me.

The faith that this woman had was inspiring. Through all of the trouble with health issues, family's health problems, persecution, mobbings, moving all over, etc. she didn't give in to Satan's influence to drag her down. She chose to overcome it all by looking at the life after this one.

If you want to know that enduring to the end can be accomplished, just read her story. The book isn't very long and can be read rather quickly.

Lucy Mack Smith amazes me. This book is written as a "non-fiction novel". So, the author has taken the liberty of writing words as if Lucy were speaking and intersperses it with Lucy's actual words in italics from her autobiography "History of Joseph Smith by His Mother". This is a powerful concise read, but I prefer Lucy's autobiography as it has only her actual words and much more detail.

I like the way the facts mix with fiction to make the time period come to life, especially through Lucy's actual words.
