There are two sets of children in this novel. The first involves the children of the Mormons who suffered persecution in Missouri and Illinois in the late 1830’s and early 1840’s. These children can be included with the children of the Fancher-Baker Wagon Train who were not murdered at Mountain Meadows in 1857 but who saw it all and were eventually returned to relatives in Arkansas.The second set of children in the novel are the grown up children who perpetrated, endorsed or passively accepted – in both Missouri, Illinois and Utah Territory – atrocity as something approved by God.
Thoughts are the blueprints from which my words flow;
the source of the questions of what I would know
about life’s many lessons and where I fit in
to wend on the arduous path where I’ll win
the gifts of sweet Wisdom who shares willingly
with those who seek goodness and what that might be.
My thoughts drive my words which provide me a tool
to bring to reality what gives me rule
and a sense of relationship with all the lives,
the knowing of such is all that life gives.
