A passionate and self reliant philosopher, she resents the constraints put on ladies, who're anticipated to serve in quiet submission. In a group the place dissent of any shape is discouraged, Emma reveals it tough to rein in her tongue–and usually doesn’t even attempt to accomplish that, fueling the animosity among her and the colony’s charismatic and more and more autocratic chief, Wilhelm Keil. ultimately Emma and her husband, Christian, are despatched in addition to 8 different males to scout out a brand new place within the northwest the place the Bethelites can organize to watch for “the final days.” Christian believes they’ve came across the fitting scenario in Washington territory, but if Keil arrives with the remainder of the neighborhood, he rejects Christian’s selection in desire of relocating to Oregon. Emma pushes her husband to take this chance to wreck clear of the gang, yet her longed-for impact brings unforeseen effects. As she seeks a shelter for her wounded religion, she learns that her passionate nature may be her maximum strength–if she will harness it effectively.From the alternate Paperback version.
