Charlotte Singer Swapp's compelling story begins with growing up in an independent fundamentalist Mormon family whose lives were shattered by the tragic murder of her father.

Throughout many dark days, months, and years, the Lord led Charlotte, a firmly committed Mormon Fundamentalist, on a journey to Himself.
