Vivid, straight forward and amazing is the story of Fanny Adler as it has been passed orally through the years to the eldest of each generation.
Now in straight-forward language that story, held inviolate for nearly two centuries is told.
Told by the 6th Great Granddaughter of Fanny Adler, the first plural wife of the Mormon Prophet, Joseph Smith, it details the relationship the prophet had with Fanny when she first moved to the home of the prophet and his wife Emma. Fanny was 14. In Fanny's words, passed from generation to generation, it tells of the bonding and marriage to the prophet at age 16 and at 20, becoming pregnant, how she was forced to leave the Smith home.
The story follows the life of the prophet as told by Fanny until his death, as she continued to stay in touch with her Mormon friends even though she had left the church.
It is a work of fiction, based in fact; a page-turning, griping tale.

Brother Hyrum, I do believe, had I been forced to choose but will never, that I would prefer being a General to that of a Prophet.

Words of Joseph Smith to his brother Hyrum:

My faithful brother, order the militia to prepare their wives for inspection. I want them all bathed and ready, in my personal quarters...when Emma leaves.

The prophet to his brother Hyrum in Nauvoo, Illinois.


It is time to break the chain.

I am the last of a lineage, the sole descendent of my sixth great-grandmother, Fanny Alger.

It was Fanny who was born in 1816 who told the story first to her son, my fifth great-grandfather, Jacob. The story has been told to the eldest in each family every generation since then. It has been passed orally to each succeeding generation with a caveat: It can never be told except to the eldest of the following generation and it can never be reduced to writing.

I am old, the only child of my parents, never married and well past my child-bearing age. It is not relevant but my name is Fan.

I am breaking a covenant that has been kept for almost two centuries because what I am writing needs to be told.

My story will not be told in the eloquent, sometimes convoluted prose of the time,
