This sweet romance of Elizabeth Ann Whitmer and Oliver
Cowdery had its root and growth in the young Latter Day Saint Church. The story begins
in New York State and ends in Missouri.
Seen through the eyes of Elizabeth Ann—between the ages
of 14 and 17—the history of the early Restoration Movement is a main focus of
the romance. For this reason, excerpts of historical records are included in
this booklet to add background information and authenticity for the events portrayed
by the author.
May the pages of this romance bring to each reader a deeper
understanding and appreciation of those stalwart Saints of yesteryear and
engender within us a pronounced commitment to live in the present day and in
the future as obedient servants of the Lord. 36 Pages $3.50
