Juneau, named after the city in which she was born, hopes to learn something that will help to re-center her life. Erin, a recent convert to the Church, is looking for the key to being a good Mormon. And Willadene, a dedicated homemaker, attends for not much more reason than finding a new recipe for homemade yogurt. By the end of the week, they have developed a unique bond and the beginning of an enduring friendship that—despite the differences and distances between them—inspires and sustains them through the challenges of life.

Juneau's feelings of guilt come to a head when a secret from her childhood and the mystery of her great-grandmother, Letitia, combine to force her to confront her past.

This children’s chapter book, specifically created for children ages 8–12 to be able to read on their own, is also a great story to read with them at bedtime or anytime! Meticulously researched for accuracy’s sake, this book will help young people gain a testimony of the mission of Joseph Smith. Line drawings throughout help bring his story to life for them. Each chapter of the book presents one incident from Joseph Smith’s life and can be read as an individual story. But the stories are arranged chronologically so that, as a whole, they present a full biography of Joseph Smith for the young reader. As one parent stated: “I read this book aloud at bedtime to my four little boys, ten to three. I’ll cherish the conversation we had after the last page was read where we all agreed that we knew Joseph’s mission was God-led and that he was a prophet. Thank you for this book!”
"I'm amazed at your ability to put bone and flesh on your characters."
-Frank Reese, founder of the Temple Riders Association
"This book is funny, sad, and outrageously on the mark. I see a best seller here."
-Mary McLain, Mesa
