History of Joseph Smith by His Mother

This is one of those books I'd been meaning to read forever, and had read bits of since it's so often referred to in other sources.  So I finally did, since it came free with an app I downloaded (which also makes it the first book I've read all the way through on the iPad).  I enjoyed it very much, even though it was a bit uneven at times, at least whether it's actually about Joseph Smith or the Smith family.  Joseph is the focus in the first half to 2/3rds of the book, but then he's hardly mentioned.

That last part really emphasizes how hard the Smiths had it.  So many family members dying.
