This historical novel is a re-telling of the life of the Mormon prophet through the eyes of his sister. In this chapter Sophronia comes upon Joseph just after he has experienced his first vision of God in the woods near their farm in Palmyra, NY. From this point on, she never loses her faith in her brother despite all that she witnesses: the finding of the gold plates, the creation of the Book of Mormon, his first experiments at plural marriage.
