The letters included in this volume are a treasure-trove of personal insights into the lives of early Church leader Joseph F. Smith and his sister Martha Ann Smith Harris during a unique era of Latter-day Saint history. Seven decades of correspondence help demonstrate the tremendous devotion between the orphaned children of Hyrum and Mary Fielding Smith as they share their innermost feelings, joys, heartaches, determinations, and family happenings. The letters range from 1854, when Joseph F. Smith was a fifteen-year-old missionary in Hawaii, to 1916, just two years before his death.
