The perhaps all-too familiar story of Joseph Smith, Jr.'s wife, Emma. I had really hoped to gain insight into Emma's character by reading this book, told from her point of view. Unfortunately, only a couple of times did the author come close to sharing the way Emma must have felt about the same events that members of the church have heard chronicled over and over in every book about Emma's husband. There was nothing technically wrong with the book,and overall it was okay to read, but I was disappointed because I thought an author of Anita's stature would be able to bring us more than just a rehashing of the same-old same-old.
