Description: Written by Janene Wolsey Baadsgaard
 The book begins with the introduction of Daniel Webster Jones' family.
 Then he meets Emily Colton
 Daniel's father sold a piece of property to the Colton's, despite the fact that his brother-in-law, a protestant minister warned him against it.
 Daniel and Emily meet when they are about 12 years old and their friendship becomes very close.
 They vow to always stay close.
 When the Colton`s are burned out of their home (Daniel believes that they die in the fire), they join in the migration from Missouri to Illinois.
 The story continues with the trials of the Colton`s and the hardships of Daniel after his father and mother both die.
 Their separate journeys take both to the Salt Lake Valley where Daniel joins the church and later he and Emily meet again
 
Review:  A great romance and a vivid reminder of the heartache and hardships endured by the early members of the church.  I didn't want to put it down.
