Mormons today have little idea about their founder's family life. Many do not know that Joseph Smith was a practicing polygamist with thirty-three wives. To understand the issues surrounding the prophet's domestic arrangements, Compton has painstakingly researched and recovered the life stories of the women, aged fourteen to fifty-four, whom the prophet married and whose salvation he guaranteed through this "new order".
