This eerie historical novel provides an insightful glimpse into a brutal chapter of pioneer history told through three of the nineteen devoted wives of John D. Lee. Needing closure of the event that took place on September 11, 1857 ? when Mormon settlers and Indian allies escorted some 140 Arkansas emigrants away from their wagons and massacred all but 17 children under 7 ? John D. Lee was scapegoated and executed 20 years later. He stood up for his faith and his principles and climbed into his coffin ready to meet his redeemer.
