This account begins in October 1838; Joseph is thirty-two years old and has less than six years to live. This fast-paced, driving narrative provides a factual account leading to the murder and is sure to capture the attention of Latter-day Saints and those not of the faith.

First off, for those who get offended or religious views you should probably stop reading right now. I loved this book. I believe I love all books about Joseph Smith. He is such a great man, and suffered through so many hardships during his life just to bring the gospel to the earth today. I loved this fact filled tail of the last six years of Joseph Smith's life. I have read so many things on him, but every time I learn something new. This book was so heart wrenching at times. The facts about what was happening at this time in history are horrifying. I will never understand prejudice. Why can't people feel free to do the desires of their heart without being persecuted. It's just so sad. I love how strong Joseph Smith's faith is during his whole life. He is such an inspiration to me. I can only hope that I have the faith that Joseph Smith has. I don't know if I would have been able to stand strong through all his brutal persecutions. Not only did he stay strong but he gained more strength and faith from them. I love how the author has pictures of some of the people he talks about in the book. It makes it so real to me. I love how he wrote this fact filled book and made it so interesting. If you like books on Joseph Smith, then this is a great book to pick up. His life, and teachings are so precious to me. I wish he did not have to suffer as he did, but am so thankful he did, so that I could have the gospel in my life today.
I just received my pre-order book today! I can't put it down! I personally know how much time and effort has gone into the writing of this amazing book. Jenkins has spent countless hours studying and preparing to capture the events that took place in the important part of History.
