Edward Tullidge, a 19th-century playwright and convert to the Church, was fascinated by the women who had helped shape the early decades of the Restoration and decided to write a book about their character and accomplishments. “So strange and thrilling is their story,” he wrote in The Women of Mormondom, “that neither history nor fable affords a perfect example; yet it is a reality of our own times.”
