When Laura Clark Phelps s husband was unjustly arrested and held in a Richmond, Missouri, jail, she launched a daring escape attempt to free him. Janetta Ann McBride was just sixteen years old when she braved chest-deep water and dangerous chunks of ice to push her starving mother and siblings across the North Platte River in a handcart. Rosa Friedlander Logie survived a shipwreck on her journey to Zion and spent two months with her husband and baby on a remote South Pacific island. Fearless in the Cause features inspiring stories from the lives of eighteen women from Church history. Some have names that are recognizable; many others remain largely unknown. All of their contributions to early Latter-day Saint history offer incredible examples of strength and courage. Stories of overcoming challenging personal circumstances, such as a diagnosis of cancer, an abusive spouse, or the loss of children, provide rich insights into the faith that inspired these heroic women to embrace opportunities they may not have chosen for themselves.
