; This is truly a unique book, offering new information for LDS readers interested in understanding Emma Hale Smith, wife of Joseph Smith the Mormon prophet. More than 75 photographs of Emma and her posterity grace the book. All of her 11 children and 28 grandchildren who were ever known to have been photographed are represented. This volume also includes a notebook of interviews with there of Emma's grandchildren who knew her intimately - eyewitnesses to her sensitive personality and the cross-currents of emotion that affected her discussions. In the copiously annotated interviews we see Emma's singular witness to the prophetic call of Joseph Smith and find kinship in the ordinary circumstances of her daily life in Nauvoo. Additionally, this book presents ten interrelated biographical essays. Rooted in a keenly felt and well-researched perspective of Emma's life, the essays capture the emotion, thoughts, and experiences that made up the Elect Lady's distinct world. With his extraordinary gift for comprehending the attitude and emotions of the Smith family, the author reveals the sources of the failures and successes of Emma's married life, the grief over the deaths of her children, the oppression of poverty and persecution, her hatred of plural marriage, her leadership of the Nauvoo Relief Society, and her participation in the sacred temple ordinances. Mr. Youngreen uses important new source material to go beyond the works of previous writers who have often sought to cast Emma Smith into the distasteful and superficial images of saint or sinner. What emerges is a clearer picture of the First Lady of the Restoration, a picture that every Latter-day Saint will thoroughly enjoy.
