The issues facing women today are not new. Most of them have been discussed for well over a century by women of many points of view. And no group of women has approached these issues with more forthrightness, wisdom and balance than did the Latter-day Saint women of the age of "emancipation." In The Flight And The Nest the author introduces us to the minds and the lives of some of these great women. Here is portrayed their devotion to their homes and families, their loyalty to the Church, and their willingness to embrace and work for all things helpful and righteous. They come through as individuals of great strength whose writings enlighten and inspire readers today as in their own day.
