Eliza, The Life and Faith of Eliza R. Snow

Eliza, The Life and Faith of Eliza R. Snow - Karen Lynn Davidson, Jill Mulvay Derr A lovely read. I looked over other reviews and I wanted to know more as well. Delve more deeply into who Eliza Snow really was. I think the problem is that Eliza didn't give us much to go on. She only kept a diary for a few short years following her sealing to Joseph Smith. How I wish there was so much more!

I enjoyed the book, not only from the way it was written and included some of her poetry, but photos of her possessions were an added bonus. What I didn't like was the lace print on every single page - it made the book feel less like a piece of literature and more like a doily visual aid in a Relief Society lesson.

I've been on an LDS history kick lately, and this has been my favorite so far. I didn't expect to like it much, and I did. There was an attempt to discover who Eliza really was from the clues she left behind.
