No marks or damage from past owners, Not a former library book, Not a remainder, or book club, no jacket, Hardcover. Very minor corner bumps. Religion, First published April 1942. Black titled spine blue/green cloth. In 1838, twenty-year-old Linsey Allen accompanies her family on their cross-country trek from Ohio to Missouri in search of the new Zion promised by the Mormon prophet Joseph Smith. Although determined to marry a Gentile and save herself from the violent persecution that the Mormons are experiencing, Linsey falls victim to cruel circumstance and marries Nathan Wells, one of Joseph Smith's most loyal followers. Thus, And Never Yield becomes a picture of everyday life in the Mormon colony. Linsey witnesses her parents' brutal deaths at Haun's Mill; she endures the siege of the Mormons at Far West; she rejoices at the invitation of the citizens of Quincy to settle in western Illinois; she adjusts to the Mormon doctrine of plural marriages; she grieves with her husband over the death of Joseph Smith; and she resigns herself to a future filled with uncertainty. Through it all, Linsey loses her perspective only briefly. Battling constantly for survival, her bold, straightforward manner sees her through crisis after crisis generated by the church and the locale. The character of Joseph Smith is never introduced directly into the story, and Brigham Young appears only briefly, yet they move in mysterious ways to mold and create the history on which this fascinating novel is based.
