The title is very misleading. The story contains occasional references to Joseph Smith. It is really a book about the Mormon history and the main character's (not Joseph Smith) involvement in it.
The Secret Garden.
Yes, it was fine.
He was a man of God. The story would have been much better if it would have focused on Jospeh Smith and his story.

I have already recommended it to many friends and I will continue to do so. I have long been a believer in storing food, medical supplies and needed items for the home to make my home self-sufficient in times of disaster...any disaster.
