Overview

Emma Smith: an Elect Lady Reveals the story of an extraordinary woman who lived in a trying time. As the wife of Joseph Smith, the first Latter-day Saint Prophet, Emma knew much of religious bigotry, vexatious lawsuits, and lawless brutality. She comforted Joseph in his extremities, bore his children, and wrote of her abiding love for him. Yet, as time passed and Joseph was murdered, Emma struggled to find her place. Her life story, unique from beginning to end, is presented here in a question and answer format to supply readers with easy access to her biographical information and increased understanding of the trials and triumphs of this remarkable woman.

Author Susan Easton Black, a Professor of Church History and Doctrine at Brigham Young University, tells of Emma Smith's unwavering belief in her husband's prophetic calling and, even in the twilight of her life, confidence in the translation of the Book of Mormon. This book is written to share her abiding testimony of these truths.
