An Englishwoman in Utah: The Story of A Life’s Experience in Mormonism


Mrs. T. B. H. Stenhouse

Series: Religion and Society
BISAC: REL012000

An Englishwoman in Utah is a plain, unexaggerated record of the author’s personal experience with Mormonism. Much that may seem altogether incredible, would to a Mormon mind appear simply a matter of ordinary every-day occurrence with which everyone in Utah is supposed to be perfectly familiar.
