Jenny, living in the frontier districts of New York and Ohio in the early 1800's, is a bright and unusually inquisitive young girl. Though living in poverty with limited schooling and spiritual guidance, and tough viciously mistreated by a drunken father, quick-minded Jenny becomes an avid reader. Her father's forbidden book holds an overwhelming fascination for her. Will she find the truth, or is she on a dangerous road with no end in sight? Here is a powerful historical novel with style and theme similar to the author's first two in this genre, concerning the early days of Mormonism.
