In the nineteenth century, Hansen’s disease spread through the Hawaiian Islands, causing the king of Hawai‘i to sanction an act that exiled all people afflicted with this disease to Kalaupapa, a peninsula on the island of Moloka‘i. Kalaupapa was separated from the rest of the world, with sheer cliffs on one side, the ocean on the other three, and limited contact with anyone, even loved ones. In Kalaupapa, the author delves into the untold history of Kalaupapa and its inhabitants, recounting the patients’ experience on the peninsula and emphasizing the Mormon connection to it.

“No other success can compensate for failure in the home”: the statement made famous by President David O. McKay, who taught Church members the importance of focusing on the family. At the age of 32, his responsibilities were magnified as a newly called Apostle. He had to learn to juggle world travel, heavy Church assignments, and his small but growing family. Later, as a member of the First Presidency, he spent a lot of time teaching and fostering both his children and grandchildren.

Readers will learn how the socioeconomic, political, and religious background in this part of England prepared people to accept the restored gospel. We describe the efforts of American and British missionaries in the area, as well as the lives of some the early converts who either emigrated or stayed in England.

From the day Lorenzo Snow stepped out of a carriage onto Italian soil in 1850 to the day that Thomas S. Monson turned a shovel of Italian soil to break ground for a temple in 2010, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has made evangelization in Italy a high priority. Mormon missionary work unfolded against a backdrop of historical forces—political upheaval, world wars, social change, and internal Church dynamics—that presented both obstacles and opportunities for growth.
