    Listening to the audiobook took away from the story. Hearing names and places I've been hearing my whole life pronounced incorrectly really bugged me. I liked the story itself knowing it was written from Joseph's mothers viewpoint. I didn't listen to the last chapter that was added on. I could tell from the first few sentences that it is people surmising and guessing what happened. I want none of that. Joseph is my 3rd great uncle. It was interesting to listen to the history of my family members Listening to the audiobook took away from the story.

Joseph is my 3rd great uncle. It was interesting to listen to the history of my family members. They were people just like me and did their best to follow the Savior. I have a family who is known for their honesty and love of the gospel and I saw that throughout this book.
