Presented as a dialogue between Grandmother and Granddaughter, Mormon history and its beliefs unfold as never before. Grandmother, convinced of the legitimacy of Joseph Smith, discloses to an inquisitive teen the betrayal and deceit she has uncovered in a forty-year quest for the truth. What unfolds is a complex drama that transformed Joseph Smith’s focus on the eternal into a gospel fixated on the flesh. A transformation paved on a trail of blood that would necessitate the eventual murdering of Joseph Smith and other family members at the hands of his own followers disguised as a mob. A trail that would climax thousands of miles away in a desert where the leader of this deceit, Brigham Young, would bring the United States Government down upon the church by orchestrating the slaughter of a wagon train. Unimaginable brutality for the four thousand dollars in gold they carried that was desperately needed to finance Brigham Young’s obsessions. The story concluded with the self-appointed leader taking his own life rather than facing justice at the hands of a nation who waited patiently with canons aimed at his estate.
