JOSEPH’S CITY BEAUTIFUL

by Mabel A. Sanford

This novel is based on Church history from 1843 until 1860, when Joseph Smith III became leader of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The story traces Robert Pemberton’s family, members of the Church of England, who had contact with the LDS Church in England. They immigrated to America, moved to Nauvoo, and experienced both joys and tribulations—all the while Robert grows to manhood.
