My review: I really enjoyed reading this book! I love Lucy Mack Smith. I feel like she was a strong, amazing woman who always stood up for what she believed in. The stories in this book validated this for me.

I love that the book includes a bit about her life as a child. There weren't overly many stories from when she was young, but I really enjoyed the ones there were. I enjoyed reading more about her family and all that happened to them. 

I was able to deepen my understanding of this amazing woman through the stories in this book. So great!

I bought my own copy of this book.
