True Sisters is an inspiring, yet depressing story. The sheer strength, spirit and determination of the four women - Nannie, Louisa, Jessie and Anne - was the only thing that got them through this ordeal. The caring, love and unselfish support they showed each other was truly inspiring. There was little to smile about in the book, however. It was difficult reading about the way these pilgrims blindly followed their leaders, resulting in tragic loss of life. The children that died was particularly painful to read about. But the historical aspects of this book, particularly the foundations of the Mormon faith, is very interesting, shedding some light on the faith of Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
