Premise: Of the nearly 2,000 saints who died while crossing the plains, we know little about those who left nothing behind - no record of their death, no personal journals, no memories of their lives. This is particularly true for children who died on the trek, but it is also true for the parents who died alongside them.
Author of Filled with His Love, Russell T. Osguthorpe, former Sunday School General President, recounts how two pioneer families in New York became one blended family, how they helped build the Nauvoo temple, struggled to leave that City beautiful, suffered while crossing the plains, and how they build a new life in Zion.
Forgotten Saints is a story about the importance of relationships - the eternal attachments we form with God and with those we love. Although the historical events in the story are accurate, the details of the lives of each character are fictional. As you make the journey with this pioneer family, you will gain a deeper witness of how important attachment relationships are - both human and divine. You will draw closer to your ancestors, to your family and friends, and to God. You will acquire a deeper desire to do everything possible to ensure that no one on either side of the veil is ever forgotten.
