Product Details


“Ulrich allows us access to lost worlds.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Ulrich stitches together diaries, poems, meeting minutes, and quilt designs into a fascinating history of women’s lives.” —Harper’s

“As crucial as it is fascinating . . . It’s no secret that history is full of people, often women, whose usually unpaid labor allowed famous men to make their marks on the world. . . . Historians like Ulrich make sure they’re not forgotten.” —Time
“Movingly portrays believers’ early struggles. . . . Ulrich is a gifted historian whose works have forged new paths in women’s studies.” —The Boston Globe
“[An] empathetic account of the women of early Mormonism. . . . Ulrich describes the daily lives of these women in attentive detail, their sorrows . . . their stubborn strength, and their willingness to defy social norms. To the astonishment of the outside world, the same women who vigorously defended multiple marriages also fought for—and won—female suffrage.” —The New Yorker
