This is an epic of independence and devotion, of hardship and fulfillment, of a woman so strong that knowing her could change your life.

When ten-year-old Dinah Kirkham saw her father leave their Manchester home in the middle of the night, she asked when he would be back. “Soon,” he replied. But he never came back. On that night in 1829, John Kirkham laid the foundation of his daughter’s certainty that the only person Dinah could ever really trust was herself.

From that day forward, Dinah worked to support her family, remaining devoted to their welfare even in the face of despair and grinding poverty. Then one day she heard a new message; a new purpose ignited in her heart, and new life opened up before her.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Orson Scott Card is a powerful storyteller with the gift of making mundane things sparkle…An engrossing epic.”

    Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • “Card’s magnum opus deserves a wider readership than it has hitherto enjoyed. Best known for his fantasy fiction, Card does an excellent job of depicting the Dickensian horrors of England undergoing industrialization in the early nineteenth century as well as the early trials of the Church of the Latter-Day Saints…Not just for the LDS faithful…this ambitious novel will appeal to anyone interested in a sensitive examination of the roots of religious feeling.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

    " I was really surprised by this book. To be honest, I really didn't want to read it. I guess that is what's so great about book clubs... they help you be more open to different types of books you read. This is going to sound awful but I really wasn't interested in reading about the saints trek to Utah. That is not what this is about at all! The first half of the book is based in England, I loved this half of the novel! I liked it all but the first half was my favorite. Orson Scott Card is an extremely talented author. I love it when a book has a rhythm, when you put it down and go about your day, you find yourself thinking in the same rhythm of the writing. I loved his first words before each new part of the book. I loved the honesty and humility he had in writing this book. His viewpoint of the early Mormon prophets was unique and at times hard to swallow but overall he turned them into real people for me. It's always easier for me to relate to people who have flaws than the people who are always made out to be perfect. If anything, it made me love them more! Thanks for the pick Aroura! "

    " I thought this book would never end. If it wasn't an audio book I would have never made it through. "

    " One star is very high imo. I have read some of the historical fiction of OCS and this one by far was horrible and gives TMI w/ bedroom scenes and personal sexual relationships between people. I did not care for the crude language (even if some of it may be words that I can find in the bible). I also didn't care for how the prophet and apostles were depicted. I really expected to read another good HF novel from OSC, but this one I couldn't/didn't finish and NEVER will. If I read an OSC book again...I will be very leery. "
