Rating of the book chapter The Nauvoo Expositor
Chapter 26 of the book Reap the West Wind
I found this quite interesting as I had never known about the so-called martyrdom of the Smiths before. Perhaps this would be well-received by an American audience, where Mormonism originated and is still so strong, but to other readers it may appear a little uninteresting. I guess that is beyond your control, but perhaps a little less detail is required. I'm not sure...just thinking and wondering.
'The Expositor is, or was, to Mormons. Possibly the most vile newspaper ever published.' I think you'll see the obvious error here.
I am intrigued and looking forward to seeing where all this is headed.
You are so right Micky. I can't believe after all the changes I saw growing up and all the sacrifice people made to have those changes, the same ugly bigoted ideas creep back around and bite us on the hinny. Good Job! You're brave to speak up, not everyone on this site will agree.
I could (and do) learn a lot from you, Lee. Your writing is so tongue in cheek, I just love it. OK. That's it in the flattering department! :) Again you have written a piece from such a simple thing and turned it into a really good read. You are a natural at story writing. (Damn, thrown in another compliment!) I did enjoy it, and had a few giggles at your descriptions. Loved it!! Sandra. xsx
Beautiful...a poem with a design...it was like an art....describing nature in an artistic view....very nice piece of work..I really enjoyed reading it , it was full of affection ...love for nature...thanks for sharing...
A brilliant lesson in gilding the lily by the master of finding a world in a drop of water. You bring Mark Twain's advice to "never let the truth get in the way of a good story" to life in this writing lesson disguised as a story about human nature. I like the hopeful note you end it on. Well done, Lee. :) nancy
