This review is from: Pillar of Light: A Historical Novel (Work and the Glory) (Hardcover)
It is an excellent book for reading to understand the history of the families that lived
during the 1815's through 1830's regarding the beginning of the Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter Day Saints. It depicts a family who lives in the same area that Joseph Smith
lived in. It puts truths, facts, in with some fictional characters to bring up a story
that can be easily read. It helps the reader understand the plights of the people who
were involved in the establishment of the restoration of the church of Jesus Christ.
It is for anyone who wants to understand the history of the church, of Joseph Smith, of
families who were associated with him, their experiences, their highlights, and sufferings.
Once the book has been read, the reader will have experiences happiness, sadness,
surprise, understanding of the people facing moments of their time because of their
choice of religion.
This book is the first of 6 series written by Gerald Lund. Members of the LDS church
will enjoy these books very much. Non-members will enjoy the book because of its
well-written content. You like the first book, you will want to read all the other
books in the series.
