Reviews

"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
