THE FADING FLOWER AND SWALLOW THE SUN
The Fading Flower: Emma Smith has brought up her children to honor the name of their father Joseph Smith, the martyred Mormon Prophet. Yet when her son David Hyrum Smith starts investigating the mysteries behind his father's involvement in polygamy and goes West to mingle with the "Brighamite" faction of Mormonism, Emma must confront a chapter in her life she would have preferred to have left closed.
Swallow the Sun: Before he became one of the world's greatest defenders of Christianity and the beloved author of the Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. "Jack" Lewis was a staunch atheist. This is the stirring and powerful story of his early life as he journeyed from entrenched skeptic to one of modern Christianity's most eloquent and courageous advocates.
