As a member of the church and a lover of history, I found this book fascinating. It seems very unbiased, facts and to the point. I’ve been to Nauvoo and Carthage Jail, to hear the stories written this way helped visualize my trip to Nauvoo. This book talks about our dark stain of polygamy, but not in a hateful way. Just matter of fact. I absolutely enjoyed this book and will recommend it to others.
